About the Artist(s)

A NYC-native, pianist Ray Gallon has been a mainstay on the jazz scene for over thirty years. Rooted in bebop and blues, his expressive, swinging playing melds old and new into a fresh, original style. As a young player, Ray was mentored by legendary jazz pianists John Lewis, Hank Jones, and Jaki Byard. He has toured and/or recorded with such luminaries as Ron Carter, Lionel Hampton, Art Farmer, George Adams, Les Paul, and Wycliffe Gordon and has appeared at the White House and Kennedy Center with jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Milt Jackson, Sweets Edison, and Joe Williams. Ray has also accompanied many vocal greats, including Jon Hendricks, Sheila Jordan, and Chaka Khan. Involved in education, he is currently a Lecturer of Jazz Studies at City College of NY.

Gallon is celebrating the release of his latest recording on Cellar Music called Grand Company which finds him in Grand Company indeed with Ron Carter on bass and Lewis Nash on drums.
