The Rubin Adam Kromelow Trio
Described as “the real deal” by All About Jazz and “a sensational pianist, and brilliant young musician” by The Buffalo News, pianist Adam Kromelow is making a name for himself in today’s music scene. Originally from the north suburbs of Chicago, Adam grew up listening to all kinds of music, and fostered a love for playing piano at an early age. When he was eighteen, he moved to New York City to study at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music from which he graduated in 2011. There, he was fortunate enough to study with modern jazz piano icons Jason Moran and Vijay Iyer.
Adam’s trio has been turning heads with the release of their debut album Youngblood on ZOHO Records. This album, produced by Grammy-winning pianist Arturo O’Farrill, reached #14 on the College Music Journal radio charts and has been widely acclaimed by critics. It was chosen as one of the Top Ten CDs of 2012 by The Philadelphia Inquirer, named the Debut Album of the Year by Nippertown Magazine, and hailed as “one of the most captivating discs by a jazz trio in years” by The Toledo Blade. The Adam Kromelow Trio recently performed at New York’s famed Paramount Theater as an opening act for the world-renowned rock/world music group Rusted Root.
Aside from his trio, Adam has been performing throughout the country with numerous ensembles. In the winter of 2010, he made his debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a guest soloist for their Welcome Yule concerts at Chicago’s Symphony Hall. In addition, Adam was selected by pianist Brad Mehldau to perform in his solo piano master class held by the Carnegie Hall Professional Training Workshop. Other solo credentials include piano concerts at the Chicago’s Skokie Theatre and New York’s 92nd St. Y’s Jazz in July master class led by pianist Bill Charlap. A life-long fan of rock music, Adam is also the co-founder of The Genesis Piano Project. This project, formed with pianist Angelo Di Loreto, tours the United States performing duo piano arrangements of the incredible music of Genesis.
