about

“...after hearing Armen Nalbandian’s new cd, I can say that Armen has found a personal voice in expressing a music that is so clearly a part of his soul. He brings to his improvisations and organization to his arrangements. He has a touch and playfulness reminiscent of Thelonious Monk, and a feeling of swing that is natural and easy.” -Ted Nash, Jazz at Lincoln Center


Released in March 2006, “Armen" is Armen Nalbandian’s debut album as a leader and the first recording featuring the Armen Nalbandian Trio. The recording features Nalbandian on piano, and contains 5 original compositions by Nalbandian, and 5 compositions by other composers including the rarely performed Thelonious Monk composition “Oska T", the George Gershwin ballad “He Loves & She Loves" and the traditional spiritual “This Train.

about

Armen Nalbandian Los Angeles, California

'' armen nalbandian is a truly great modern musician with an expansive understanding of the jazz tradition and then some. he has a completely open mind and big open ears. his work on prepared fender rhodes is a revelation to someone like me who grew up hearing that instrument in the way it was used in the 70s. armen can massage the jazz and can find the music and beauty in noise.''
