PRAISE FOR EVOLUTION/REVOLUTION:
"Add Martin Bejerano to the expanding roster of hot young pianists that stretches from Hiromi
Uehara and Eldar Djangirov to Robert Glasper and Taylor Eigsti...(The trio's) take on Miles Davis’
“Solar” is so convincing, so mature, that the guys could almost be mistaken for Keith Jarrett’s
standards trio...What a debut. The other young guns should watch out for this guy."
-Steve Greenlee (Jazz Times)
“When technique, an advanced harmonic sense and lyrical playfulness meet on a plane of selfcontrol, as is heard in Martin Bejerano, one has to marvel. A brilliant, young Miami-born pianist who
lives in New York, and who is a highlight in bands led by Roy Haynes and Russell Malone,
Bejerano has shaped his own post-Corea/Jarrett/Zeitlin blend with Cuban influences. Here, he
makes a strong debut as leader, with on-the-case backing from bassist Edward Perez and
drummer Ludwig Afonso.”
- Zan Stewart (Newark Star Ledger)
“…this promising young pianist is not just the latest hotshot showing off his technique, but a mature
pianist who can develop his ideas into performances that will stand the test of time.”
- Ken Dryden (All Music Guide)
“With his debut as leader, pianist Martin Bejerano tackles Jazz’s mainstream and comes up
winning. His acoustic trio interprets this program of standards and originals with aplomb, turning
each song over to a detailed inspection of what makes it memorable.”
- Jim Santella (Cadence)
“Bejerano makes the most of a full and fluent style.”
- Nate Chinen (New York Times)
“…versatility reminiscent of Brad Mehldau and Chick Corea…”
- Adam Gold (Boston Phoenix.com)

"Add Martin Bejerano to the expanding roster of hot young pianists that stretches from Hiromi Uehara and Eldar
Djangirov to Robert Glasper and Taylor Eigsti…” – Jazz Times
Martin Bejerano, a native of Miami, Florida, has been active as a professional musician since the
age of fifteen, when he began his performance career playing George Gershwin’s "Rhapsody in Blue"
concerto with the Mexican-American Bi-National Symphony while still in high school. A graduate of the
esteemed New World School of the Arts, he received a full scholarship to attend Florida State University,
where he studied classical piano with Leonidas Lipovetsky, and jazz piano, composition, and arranging with
Bill Peterson, whom he cites as one of his most important influences. He then went on to receive a Master’s
degree from the University of Miami, also under full scholarship. During this time, Martin won third place in
the nation in the prestigious 1999 Great American Jazz Piano Competition, and was chosen to attend the
famed Thelonious Monk Institute Jazz Colony.
In the summer of 2000, Bejerano decided a move to New York City was in order to further develop his
career. The move turned out to be a good one, and, in less than a year, he was asked to join the quartet of
legendary jazz drummer and Grammy award-winning artist Roy Haynes. In 2004, their recording "Fountain
of Youth" was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Jazz Album--Martin’s first recording on
a major label. In January 2002, Martin also joined internationally acclaimed guitarist Russell Malone’s
quartet, and continues to tour and record with both these groups.
Employing a serious technical command of the piano, a highly modern harmonic and rhythmic concept, and
a commitment to lyricism and musicality, Martin has continually garnered critical praise across the world.
Having performed with the likes of the Christian McBride Band, Dave Holland, Pat Metheney, Ignacio
Berroa, Lonnie Plaxico, Bryan Lynch, Adam Nussbaum, Arturo Sandoval, Mingus Big Band, Marcus
Strickland, and even traded choruses with the legendary Chick Corea, one can easily gain a sense of
Bejerano’s formidable talent on the keyboard. Martin has performed at most of the major jazz festivals,
clubs and concert halls around the world, and is proud to have toured with “Jazz Reach”, a non-profit
organization that presents multimedia concerts for school children across the country, educating them on
the history of jazz music as an American art form.
In 2006, producer and Reservoir record label owner Mark Feldman heard Martin perform at the Kingston
Jazz Festival, approached him after the show, and soon after offered to produce Martin’s debut CD as a
leader. Recorded and engineered by acclaimed engineer Jim Anderson at Avatar studios in New York City,
Martin’s debut CD Evolution/Revolution was released in May 2007 to high critical praise. It quickly shot up
to number nine on the Jazz Week Jazz Album Chart, which lists the top 50 jazz albums based on airplay.
Martin's career as a solo artist has blossomed with recent performance at Symphony Space, Dizzy's Club
Coca Cola, Jazz Gallery, and Festival Miami, as well as being awarded the prestigious "New Jazz Works"
composition and ensemble development grant by Chamber Music America.
Currently, Martin heads the jazz piano department at the University of Miami, and continues to perform
internationally. He is featured on several recent recordings, including "Evolution/Revolution", Roy Haynes’s
"Roy-alty", and will release his next album fall of 2012.
