Eldar Djangirov

Don't you wish you stuck with your piano lessons? Teenage jazz pianist phenom Eldar Djangirov will blow your socks off. A few of you may be familiar with him, as he has been on the Grammy Awards. Eldar is an immigrant from the former Soviet Union, specifically Kyrgyzstan. His talent is way beyond his years. He started playing piano when he was three and a half years old and he hasn't looked back. His sound, musical phrasing, and compositions all scream musical genius. Eldar is his debut album and it is a glorious effort. If you are a fan of piano jazz, you will not be disappointed. I particularly enjoyed his versions of "Moanin," one of my favorite jazz compositions, and Herbie Hancock's (another former teenage jazz prodigy) "Maiden Voyage." Click here to listen.
