"...A thoughtful and entertaining player who builds to exciting climaxes of cascading notes in the manner of Erroll Garner." --The New York Sun
Victor Lin is an exciting young musician with an arsenal of talents, including an uncanny ear, multi-instrument virtuosity, and a seemingly endless reserve of ideas and energy. On the piano he is both a sensitive accompanist and a stellar improviser, and he plays some of the best jazz violin around. He is also a dedicated teacher and a perennial favorite among students at the Stanford Jazz Workshop. Victor studied with piano innovator Kenny Barron at Rutgers University, and is now a doctoral student in music and music education at Columbia University. When he's not studying he gigs with his own trio and various other ensembles in and around New York. Victor's unique blend of communication, showmanship, and wit always brings down the house at his Stanford performances.
