Boston, MA – November 20, 2019 – Eyran Records announces the release of master jazz pianist Eyran Katsenelenbogen’s highly anticipated new solo album, Outstandards.
"I would like to thank the wonderful students at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School for inspiring many of the pieces on Outstandards and their arrangements." — Eyran Katsenelenbogen
In Outstandards, pianist Eyran Katsenelenbogen presents jazzy renditions of classical cornerstones such as “Für Elise" (Beethoven) and Mozart’s “Piano Sonata in C major" alongside jazz classics such as “Tea for Two" (Youmans / Caesar) and “Cheek to Cheek" (Berlin). Katsenelenbogen also revisits Chick Corea’s “Armando’s Rhumba," which was released on his CD Solotude in 2005 and delivers an intimate performance of “Insensatez" (How Insensitive) (Jobim / De Moraes). Prior to their recording for the CD, all the pieces on Outstandards were performed extensively during Eyran’s concert tours in China in 2014 and 2016. The piece “Insensetaz" (How Insensitive) carries a special meaning for Katsenelenbogen and is dedicated it to his parents, in gratitude for their eternal love.
Praise for Eyran Katsenelenbogen
“Perhaps Katsenelenbogen is most in league with Art Tatum for this fact: he sets the bar towards which other pianists must strive." — Jay Deshpande, All About Jazz
“He is a passionate man who feels deeply, and he has the talent to express those feelings through his playing. You can not help but be moved by his performance." — Frank Rubolino, Cadence
“And the fact that, as on Outstandards, Eyran can arrange the most well known classical themes as stride or bebop without losing their essence further defines the term 'virtuoso.'" — Andrea Canter, Jazz Police
"He can do pretty much anything with a piano and there is an irrepressible joy to the playing that we could use right now" — Brian Morton, Jazz Journal
