Michael Gallant

Born:

Described by one critic as “an artist unafraid and bending the tradition,” keyboardist/composer Michael Gallant has never been one to play as written —and with his new augmented trio release Live Plus One, Gallant reintroduces his disruptive musical tendencies within the context of a lush and powerful live album. Live Plus One is the Michael Gallant Trio’s follow-up to the widely acclaimed 2013 debut Completely (Gallant Music).

Michael Gallant Trio: Completely

Read "Completely" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


For many an ivory-tickler, the piano trio is the perfect format for supper club-appropriate sashays through standards, but Michael Gallant doesn't think that way; he'd rather put a little power, pizzazz and punch into the piano trio, using it as a springboard to launch his oft-excitable tunes.

Michael Gallant Trio: Completely

Read "Completely" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan
