Tigran Hamasyan – Phenomenal Jazz Pianist

I just discovered Tigran Hamasyan, a truly phenomenal musician from Armenia.

From a brief search on YouTube, you see him performing with people like Dhafer Youssef, Trilok Gurtu, Lars Danielsson and Nguyen Le. In a few clips he’s joined on drums by Marc Giuliano, who I know as Erik Trufazz’s drummer.

This guy is incredible!

On the video below his Trio is joined by Nguyen Le, a very good jazz guitarist. To me Nguyen has a 70’s Jazz Fusion sound – so nice.

Be patient and stick with the intro or skip ahead to about 3:30 for the instruments to kick in.

A few of Tigran’s other songs I’ve loved so far are:

Vardavar

and Red Hail Part 1:Serpentine

Just Wow!
