Grammy-nominated organist, the winner of Downbeat Magazine’s 2016 rising star poll and Hot House magazine’s 2019 poll, Pat Bianchi, has established himself as one of the premier jazz organists on the scene today. Along with having performed with such greats as Red Holloway, Terell Stafford, Chuck Loeb, Dakota Staton, Ralph Peterson Jr, Joe Locke and Tim Warfield (among many others) Bianchi has had the honor of being a long time member of legendary guitarist Pat Martino’s trio and also performed with NEA Jazz Master Lou Donaldson for a number of years as well. Bianchi, currently based in NYC is on faculty at Berklee College of Music and Queens College. He has released six CDs as a leader and is also a featured artist on over 30 recordings. His most recent release, "In The Moment” rose to #1 on the Jazzweek Radio Charts. A new recording featuring his current trio (Paul Bollenback and Byron Landham) will be released in late 2020.
