The New Yorker calls Ehud Asherie "A master of stride and swing" and his latest recording "Wild Man Blues" showcases his mastery of these styles. You can hear the influences of James P Johnson, Fats Waller and Bud Powell in his playing. Joining him are Peter Washington on bass and Rodney Green on drums. Asherie imbues his performances with musical surprises and a sense of humor as he weaves through music from all eras of jazz, from Louis Armstrong to Charlie Parker. Also included are two pieces influenced by time spent living in Brazil. Asherie is a first call pianist for many New York musicians for both recordings and gigs.
