Personalities | Uri Caine | Contemporary Era | Jazz & Blues

(Piano, b. 1956)

Born in Philadelphia, Caine pursued classical studies and performances with locally based jazz stars (Philly Joe Jones, Grover Washington Jr.) prior to moving to New York in the late 1980s and commencing an international career. He has productive associations with clarinetist Don Byron and trumpeter Dave Douglas, among others, and his output ranges from mainstream and electric piano trios to neo-klezmer, to post-modern revisions of works by Mahler, Wagner and Bach, and a concept album depicting early twentieth-century Tin Pan Alley.
