Pianist, composer and educator Dave Meder is quickly becoming one of the prominent artists of his generation, known for a panoramic, genre-bending approach that has earned him slots in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition and the American Pianists Awards.

He has performed in some of New York’s most hallowed rooms, including several headlining stands at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, and internationally at the Tokyo Jazz Festival, Torino Jazz Festival, and others. In 2013, Meder won the esteemed Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition. His debut album, Passage (Outside In Music, 2019), is a dynamically interactive piano-trio outing boasting appearances by the generation-defining saxophonists Chris Potter and Miguel Zenón.

“inventing his music freely, bringing honky-tonk, swing, blues,

rock-and-roll—in other words a vibrant hybrid

of the whole American spectrum—to bear,

making for a sparkling debut full of exciting promise.”

“…[Meder sails] through diverse tempos and themes in a manner reminiscent of Oscar Peterson. The pianist’s fingers run circles around his musicians, seeming to leave lofty chemtrail-like spirals in the air.”
