Biography

Erik Deutsch’s first project as Erik Deutsch actually includes a bunch of other folks—and their names are some of the best-known among NY scene insiders. The distinction matters: “Fingerprint” is a masterwork of arrangement, weaving avant-garde threads into a sweet, even moving, mutual reliance.

The much anticipated debut release from pianist Erik Deutsch is now available from Sterling Circle Records. Fingerprint showcases Deutsch’s skills as a player, composer, and arranger. Lush harmonies, melodies, and virtuosic performances characterize his remarkably fresh approach to modern jazz. Throughout the past decade, Deutsch has spearheaded a variety of different ensembles. County Road X, Triangle, and Fat Mama all released albums where he was the featured performer and composer. Although Fingerprint is far from Deutsch’s first recording project, it is the first under his name. He wrote, arranged, produced, and performed on all tracks. Erik considers the album to be an important accomplishment: “Fingerprint is a collection of songs that illustrate what I love most about music: melody, harmony, orchestration, improvisation, and groove. I’ve always tried to listen to a wide range of musical styles, and I hope this record reflects my passion for all of them.” The album features some of the top young stars of the jazz world and beyond. Jenny Scheinman on violin (Bill Frisell, Lucinda Williams), Ron Miles on cornet (Madeleine Peyroux, Bill Frisell), Todd Sickafoose on bass (Ani Defranco), Allison Miller on drums (Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ani Defranco), Ross Martin on guitars (Sonya Kitchell), and the unique style of Janet Feder on prepared guitar, banjo, and dobro.
