Sam Javitch is an accomplished pianist and composer and a student of Mulgrew Miller, James Weidman, Harold Mabern, and Cecil Bridgewater.  A consummate piano prodigy, Javitch first came to the instrument at age 3 after discovering that he had perfect pitch. A natural improviser, Javitch was drawn to jazz at an early age and has established himself as a unique and distinctive voice on the contemporary jazz scene. 

A solid marriage of quality composition, performance, and production... To hear traditional jazz that sounds as good as this does is continually rewarding.
