Musician

David Bryant

Pianist/Composer David Bryant is a world-class artist. Few musicians today match the versatility, originality, and sensitivity that he brings to the music. He combines an extensive knowledge of the jazz tradition and other diverse musical idioms, as well an individualistic approach and sound. It is no surprise that he is quickly rising to the top of the international jazz scene.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Mr. Bryant started playing piano at age 4. By age 8, he was competing and ranking in some of the New York area’s most prestigious youth classical piano competitions, such as BACA and the Queens College Festival of Music Competition. Four years later, David also began playing cello and trumpet, performing with youth symphonies and chamber programs on all three instruments. As a result of his dedication, he was accepted to New York’s prestigious LaGuardia High School of Music and Arts. It was here that David became interested in jazz.

Perhaps it's her Washington Heights sidewalk sense that, no matter the game, you play and play alike. Or that you ...
