G.F. Mlely

Born:

Pianist-composer G. F. Mlely has been featured artist and composer in concert, festival, and club venues throughout Europe and the United States.� In the much published article, "G. F. Mlely, A Trail Of Endurance" journalist Nathan Gold described how in 1983 the jazz pianist-composer, with an album in Top 10 airplay, was on a solo piano concert tour of Europe, when midway along he received information that caused him to suddenly abandon the tour due to personal circumstances, and to leave off playing professionally for nearly two decades. As of this writing, however, with two new solo piano albums, Re-Entry [2000] and 88 Keys and Counting [2002], and one trio album, A Little Night Waltz [2003], Mlely has returned, and, as AllAboutJazz.com staff reviewer John Kelman writes, Mlely is, quite simply, back, and with a vengeance." "Mlely is one of the few pianists out there who can extend a solo piano interpretation to seven minutes and maintain interest throughout," notes All About Jazz

Read "ReEntry" reviewed by John Kelman


When pianist G.F. Mlely returned to the music scene in 2000, one might easily have wondered if, after a hiatus of nearly twenty years, he still had it. After all, he had quite a successful touring and recording career and a recording, Trio , that was among the top ten jazz albums being played on US ...

G.F. Mlely Trio: A Little Night Waltz

Read "A Little Night Waltz" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


It's difficult enough keeping up with the many new jazz piano trio offerings. So, when you come across G.F. Mlely, who has a recording history going back to 1979, it's a bit puzzling that someone so prolific has been so unknown. As a jazz composer and pianist, avant-garde choral composer, author of essays on jazz writing ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
