Eugene Pliner is a versatile jazz pianist....
Eugene began his musical career at an early age in Riga, Latvia (formerly Russia). In his early twenties, he migrated to the U.S. where he continued to study piano at the new England Conservatory in Boston under the direction of Ron Blake. He also studied with Andy LaVerne and Richie Bierach in New York. Eugene Pliner's first professional gigs were with the multi-instrumentalist, Ira Sullivan, and Gary Campbell (tenor sax), professor at the University of Miami in Florida. He has recorded in Paris with Stephen McCraven, the prominent drummer in the Archie Shepp band. Eugene's most recent recording project was called 'Memoire d'Antibes'. This recording features a program of original compositions.
Currently, Eugene has a residence at Les Joulins Jazz Bistro every Thursday and Friday.
