Tamir Hendelman Trio


Tamir Hendelman, piano (US), Alex Frank, bass (US), Germain Cornet, drums (FR)

Pianist, composer and arranger Tamir Hendelman is known for his imaginative and sensitive playing and arranging on his own trio recordings and those of the Jeff Hamilton Trio and the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra since 2000-2001, as well as his work with Natalie Cole, Barbra Streisand and Roberta Gambarini, Graham Dechter, Richard Galliano and Claudio Roditi. As a youth, he moved from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles, winning Yamaha’s national keyboard competition, performing in Japan and the Kennedy Center, attending Tanglewood in 1998 and receiving a Bachelor of Music Composition from the Eastman School of Music in 1993. His interest in the intersection of jazz and classical music was nourished by early study with pianist/composers including Clare Fischer and Billy Childs. When Tamir Hendelman premiered John Clayton’s version of Oscar Peterson’s Canadiana Suite in 2001, Mr. Peterson wrote: “It was a satisfying but strange feeling… to hear a new young voice make some exhilarating and thoughtful solos in the spaces I used to occupy in those pieces…” Tamir Hendelman has performed with the Winston-Salem Symphony, Arizona MusicFest and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras, and recently was one of several UCLA composers to be commissioned for pianist Inna Faliks’ Reimagine Project. He has been on the faculty of UCLA’s Herb Alpert School of Music since 2005 and given numerous workshops in universities and music programs in the US and abroad. His latest CD, Destinations reached #1 in the US jazz charts. The album takes listeners along on a voyage of musical discovery, from originals to Jobim, Keith Jarrett and Maurice Ravel. Recent recordings include Graham Dechter’s Minor Influence and Jeff Hamilton Trio’s Catch Me If You Can
