Mark Eisenman

I'm a jazz pianist in Toronto who's originally from NYC. My latest Cd is a Quintet featuring Mark Eisenman (piano) Pat Labarbera (saxophones) John Macleod (trumpet & flugelhorn) Steve Wallace (bass) John Sumner (drums) playing my original compositions. I've been very active in the Toronto scene. I do a lot of accompanying gigs, playing in many bands. My reputation as a sensitive accompanist for vocalists seems to precede me. I also teach privately, and at York University. Please visit my web site for audio samples of my playing. A few years ago I recorded with Jazz Drummer Jimmy Cobb, when he was at the IAJE in Toronto.

Eisenman, though born in New York City, has been based in Toronto since 1972, and has clearly positioned himself, quite proudly, on the conservative side of the jazz spectrum. What this means, especially with respect to Apparition, is that Eisenman's ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
