Jazz pianist Taylor Eigsti plays benefit concert for Haiti
Amelie's Angels, under the auspices of St. Mark's Church in Palo Alto, has as its mission to support the education and well-being of children in Pacasse, Haiti. The association was created by Jessie Jewitt in 2013 after the tragic death of her daughter Amelie Le Moullac. This is our final fundraiser, with the goal of raising $20,000 to complete the construction of a school in Haiti.
32-year old New York-based pianist and composer Taylor Eigsti started playing the piano when he was 4 years old, was quickly labeled a prodigy, and has since released 7 albums as a leader.
In 2006, Eigsti received two Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Solo and Best Instrumental Composition after releasing "Lucky to Be Me" (Concord Jazz). Since then, Eigsti released two much-acclaimed albums after this, "Let it Come to You" (2008 Concord) and "Daylight at Midnight" (2010 Concord).
Eigsti has had the good fortune of performing, touring or recording with such luminaries as Dave Brubeck, among many others over the years. He has traveled internationally quite extensively with his trio and quartet, and has performed at many premiere venues throughout the world, including Carnegie Hall, Salle Pleyel, David Geffen Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, Davies Symphony Hall, and many top festivals including Montreal Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, and many others.
