"I always associate visuals with music - and music with visuals," says New York based, french-born pianist and composer, Romain Collin. From the very first note on his ACT debut, Press Enter, his music creates evocative moving pictures which cast a spell on the listener. Vivid musical storytelling is at the core of Collin's vision. His compositions, built around powerful melodic themes, fascinate with their far-reaching dynamic and emotional range.
Romain Collin
The French-born, now New York-based pianist Romain Collin is considered a promising newcomer in the international jazz scene. Jon Weber of American National Public Radio described Collin as "a visionary composer, an outstanding jazz pianist, and a bright rising star in the world of jazz." Collin had already made an impressive mark by 1979, whether as a scholarship recipient at the legendary Berklee College of Music and the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, on tour with giants like Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock, or sharing the stage with Marcus Miller, Jimmy Heath, and Terence Blanchard.
