Eldar Djangirov played the Triple Door Sunday Oct 26th
Postbop piano-prodigy Eldar Djangirov, originally from Kyrgyzstan, has awed the jazz world since coming onto the music scene. After being discovered at the age of nine, Eldar and his family moved to the United States, and just two years later he was a featured performer on Marian McPartland’s radio program, Piano Jazz. Since then he has recorded five albums, signed with a major label, and earned a Grammy nomination for his 2007 album, re-imagination. Along the way he has worked with many of the biggest names in contemporary jazz, including John Patitucci, Michael Brecker, Roy Hargrove, and Chris Botti. Now 21, Eldar continues to impress both audiences and critics with his dazzling pyrotechnics, structural maturity, and forward-looking compositions.
