Sam Javitch

Sam Javitch is an accomplished pianist and composer and a student of Mulgrew Miller, James Weidman, Harold Mabern, and Cecil Bridgewater. A consummate piano prodigy, Javitch first came to the instrument at age 3 after discovering that he had perfect pitch. A natural improviser, Javitch was drawn to jazz at an early age and has established himself as a unique and distinctive voice on the contemporary jazz scene. This is evidenced by his phenomenal debut solo piano effort Train to Nowhere (2014), by his many performances at renowned locales including Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Joe’s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, 55 Bar, the Jazz Room at William Paterson University, and, most recently, by the release of his critically acclaimed sophomore album People and Places (2018) (that features the renowned tenor saxophonist Rich Perry, known for his association with Maria Schneider and George Mraz – and includes seven original compositions by Javitch). Sam received a full scholarship to the honors jazz performance program at William Paterson University and graduated with honors in 2015. He completed his Masters in Jazz Performance at Manhattan School of Music in 2017. He has studied at the SIM School for Improvisational Music. from
