about

"From swinging piano melodies to moody atmospheric prepared rhodes, Armen brings a myriad of sounds for the listeners delight."
-Susie Ibarra


"...extremely tuneful and organic music with a real group synergy, plus a wonderful negotiation between accessibility and a true spirit of adventure. highly recommended!"
-D.D. Jackson, Downbeat Magazine


"Armen Nalbandian's new trio release is a testament to what is happening in contemporary jazz today. A beautiful combination of hard bop, free improvisation, and experimentation, Nalbandian's new compositions (and the band that he has put together to realize them) are at once provocative, referential, and curiously "out" without leaving the lay listener a way in.”
-Derek Keller

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.''
-Matthew Shipp
