Described by NPR host Jon Weber as “a visionary
composer, an extraordinary jazz pianist and a very bright
young rising star in the jazz world”, Romain Collin continues to
develop his vision, combining the tradition of improvisation
with sound designing and classical music. Now releasing his
second record as a leader, Collin keeps making his mark on
the New York scene, as well as internationally.
In 2007, Romain Collin graduated from the prestigious
Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz where he held a Full
Scholarship as the pianist of an ensemble handpicked by
Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Terence Blanchard.
During his time at the TMIJ, Romain studied with the likes of
Larry Goldings, Russell Ferrante, Ron Carter, Charlie Haden,
Mulgrew Miller and Wynton Marsalis, and had the opportunity
to tour with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter in Vietnam
