Albey Balgochian

Bassist & Composer Albey Balgochian’s playing is a dynamic driving force on the NYC music scene. His background in blues, r&b, funk, reggae, and world beat have a profound influence on his sound. Dedicated to the experimental arts, his improvisations are the conversation of lifes’ evolutionary journey, a ceaseless exploration of dimensions, colors, textures, sights and sounds, emotions known and unkown … music.

He is the bandleader of “Bassentric”, the “ZenBeatz” and the A.R.M. (All Revolutionary Music) Band, as well as bassist with Cecil Taylor since 2005 (All About Jazz Best Performances of 2005 and 2009).
