Being one of the most versatile New Jersey jazz musicians, Arnie studied classical, popular and jazz piano in Connecticut and later in New York. His forté is Harlem Stride Jazz Piano, which is the style that Arnie picked up from his father, who was a terrific self-taught pianist himself. He instructed Arnie on the finer points of improvisational jazz incorporating the Stride piano technique.
While growing up in New Haven, Connecticut, Arnie also played piano with a Dixieland jazz band called the Bourbon Street 7. The members, mostly in their 60’s & 70’s, were cool enough to allow an inexperienced 18-year old pianist with potential to sit in…and Arnie learned quite a bit hanging around those great musicians.
Here’s a small sample of Arnie’s work:
Arnie combines his classical, pop and jazz background with hundreds of standards by such great artists as George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Sinatra, Harry Connick, Jr., Jerome Kern, and other great artists of that era, to make your party, wedding, or other special event a real hit!
