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). That same crossover talent is why she's been featured on voice and keyboards in the bands of Rufus Wainwright, St. Vincent, KT Tunstall, and Chris Botti.

Bret Primack on Jazz Video and the Ira Gitler Documentary

Read "Bret Primack on Jazz Video and the Ira Gitler Documentary" reviewed by S.G Provizer


Since the 1990's, Bret Primack has probably been the most prolific video chronicler of jazz in the world.
