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.
