Misha Piatigorsky

Hailed by the Boston Globe as the artist who “beautifully merges the worlds of serious jazz and pop,” Misha blends powerful melodies with an unusual harmonic sensitivity. This concept gives his sound a deeply personal yet cosmopolitan dimension, reflecting his experience as a Russian-Jewish émigré growing up in urban America. The great nephew of legendary cellist Gregor Piatigorsky, with international upbringing followed by international acclaim, he works in New York City to advance the modern jazz sound beyond the standards. He leads a number of projects including The Sketchy Orkestra – his innovative ensemble band some 20 people strong.
