Ron Stabinsky

Ron Stabinsky, a pianist, first began playing with MOPDtK as part of a 2011 project at the Bimhuis Amsterdam to commemorate the anniversary of Eric Dolphy’s and Booker Littles’ Live at the Five Spot. Stabinsky was a founding member of the group after he collaborated on the Blue project and this. He is a member of both the septet and quartet versions of the band, and has been featured on MOPDtK’s most recent albums Red Hot Blue and Mauch Chunk. Stabinsky perfectly fits in with the MOPDtK aesthetic, providing virtuosic solos that are full of humor and referencing everything from Conlon Nancarrow and Philip Glass to Billy Joel and other MOPDtK material. Stabinsky can be found as an accompanist in almost every context, including classical recitals, community choirs, jazz, pop, and all other musical genres. Stabinsky is the pianist for Peter Evans Quintet. He appears on Destination:Void in 2013, the group’s epic sci fi adventure album. It was based on Frank Herbert’s novel. Stabinsky is also a member of the Philadelphia New Music Ensemble Relache and the Charles Evans Quartet, with NEA Jazz Master David Liebman. He also collaborates with Cris Kirkwood (bassist for the Meat Puppets). Stabinsky resides in Plains, PA. His debut album Free for One features eight solo piano improvisations that are both adventurous and genre-hopping. It is a collection that showcases the artist’s technical virtuosity as well as his unerring musicality. Hot Cup Records, the home of MOPDtK, will release the recording on June 10, 2016. from
