Eric Pan

Pianist and musical artist Eric Pan creates novel and transportive experiences for audiences, incorporating musical performance, improvisation, live storytelling, and interactive physical installations. This year, he releases a three-volume album of original music, titled “Travel Poems” — an unconventional debut containing not only piano and Fender Rhodes solo, duo, and trio compositions, but also soundscapes to expand their narrative possibilities. The Travel Poems live show elevates this concept further, interweaving immersive storytelling to enlist audiences as co-creators of expeditions diverse and far-flung. Following a decade's tenure as a New York City jazz pianist and composer, including performances with Jeff Hamilton, Roy Hargrove, and John Patitucci, Pan's compositions and improvisations reveal a relentless pursuit of simplicity, craft, and universality.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
