Musician

Rachel Eckroth

Born:

Polymath (noun): a person of wide-ranging knowledge or learning. Music needs a term for this. What do you call one person who is a pianist, vocalist, keyboardist, composer, producer, arranger, band leader, sideman and more? Music may not have a term, but it does have a name: Rachel Eckroth. Eckroth can lead with a bold vision or accompany with the subtle skills necessary to make another musician shine. Her combination of jazz experimentation and pop feeling form the engine behind her own work as a leader or co-leader on 20 albums, most recently The Garden on Rainy Days Records (2021)

Rachel Eckroth: The Garden

Read "The Garden" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Pianist and composer Rachel Eckroth travels a twisty road on this CD, creating an ever-changing mix of jazz, prog rock, and fusion which utilizes off- center beats and swarming electronic effects.

Approccio numero uno: Non so se ve ne siete accorti ma esistono dischi che al primo ascolto ti fanno dire “ok." Al secondo “eh però...." Al terzo “Cribbio... Wow! Ma cosa stavo ascoltando le altre due volte?." Al quarto, se volete giocare con i maledetti voti, siamo già vicini al “beh cinque stelle ...
