Artist Biography by

Lee Bloom, pianist, has worked in many contexts on the San Francisco Bay Area music scene since 1990. Originally from Ohio, Lee began playing the keyboard at age two on a toy piano. This activity, coupled with passionate marching and dancing while listening to his father's dixieland records, eventually encouraged Lee's parents to begin his formal training on a regulation-sized instrument. Since these formative years, Lee has appeared at many San Francisco venues and currently performs in several jazz settings including piano trio, quartet/quintet, and big band. He has toured with jazz groups in France and the Czech Republic. Lee has also worked as a session player, contributing to a variety of recording projects ranging from straight-ahead jazz to folk to heavy metal to country and western. He teaches music privately and is a member of the International Association of Jazz Educators. He has an academic background in visual arts and music, and is interested in the inter-relatedness of things visual and musical. Lee is also a licensed Architect.
