ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hailed by the New York Times as "a painterly young pianist with a chamber-like approach to composition and a fine recent album on the SmallsLive label," Theo Hill is emerging as one of the top young voices in jazz piano.
Born in Albany, New York, he began to study classical piano with Taubman Technique specialist Mary Moran at the age of five. He gravitated toward jazz studying piano at age twelve with Lee Shaw. By age sixteen, he was performing at clubs in the tri-city area and made his first New York City appearance sitting in at Smalls Jazz Club.
He was accepted into the Jazz Conservatory at SUNY Purchase where he studied jazz piano with Charles Blenzig and Hal Galper. After graduating cum laude in 2004 he moved to New York City to immerse himself in the vibrant jazz culture.
Theo has performed in hundreds of venues including Dizzy’s Club at Lincoln Center, The Blue Note, Birdland, Carnegie Hall, Smalls, 55 Bar, The Iridium, Jazz Standard, Zinc Bar, Lenox Lounge, Minton's, Bill's Place, Smoke, St. Nick’s Pub, Cleopatra’s Needle, Fat Cat, Shapeshifter Lab, Nublu, and The Jazz Gallery.
