On this Grammy nominated CD, Joanne Brackeen: Pink Elephant Magic (also available as a MP3 download), Jazz pianist Joanne Brackeen displays an unbridled artistic creativity and passion through her distinctive compositional skills and her piano virtuosity in this recording with all-star guests Nicholas Payton, Kurt Elling, David Liebman and Chris Potter and her world-class rhythm section of John Patitucci and Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez.


            “One of the most distinctive, exciting jazz pianists in the world"

-DownBeat Magazine


Brackeen has been serious about Jazz piano since her late teens, when she became part of the LA jazz scene.   She worked with Teddy Edwards, Dexter Gordon, Harold Land and Charles Lloyd before moving to New York.  After arriving in the Jazz Mecca, she became the first women to fill the distinguished piano chair with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers.  Before she put together her own group, she also worked with Stan Getz, Freddie Hubbard, and Joe Henderson. 


“Her powerful, two-fisted playing has absorbed all the major modern jazz piano styles, notably those of McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Bud Powell, Keith Jarrett, Randy Weston and even a little bit of Cecil Taylor; her improvisations whiz around the keyboard, undaunted by harmonic complexity or high speeds.”                                                                         Jon Pareles, New York Times


Joanne Brackeen: Pink Elephant Magic features world class musicians in an unparalleled performance of creative and passionate improvisations, as well as thoughtful and renowned compositions from one of Jazz’s most distinguished modern pianists.
