May dates for TIGRAN

TIGRAN and his trio, comprised of Sam Minaie on bass and Arthur Hnatek on drums, played several show in May. On the 1st they were at the North Wall in Oxford, a lovely and intimate venue; on the 2nd they nipped over to Dublin to play the Button Factory, and then they crossed back on the 3rd to play the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. After a few days off they landed in Camden to play the Jazz Cafe on the 13th.



TIGRAN continues to be very busy, either on the road or composing yet more material. The hottest new piano star only keeps getting hotter!



“Not since the days of the anthemic finales and light-show theatricals of the Esbj√∂rn Svensson Trio has a stage in the London jazz festival vibrated with so much pop-jazz energy as was unleashed on Tuesday by the 26-year-old Armenian TIGRAN,” remarked the Guardian in the explosive show at the Queen Elizabeth Hall by TIGRAN. All cylinders were firing once TIGRAN and his quintet hit the stage. He was clearly enjoying himself and the audience ate it up.
