About the Artists
TERI ROIGER (Vocalist, Pianist, Composer)
American jazz musician Teri Roiger lives in New York City and also in New York’s Hudson Valley, and over the years her music career has taken many exciting twists and turns. Teri is a jazz vocalist, but also plays piano, composes music, and writes lyrics. She has performed as a DUO with her husband, bassist John Menegon, throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Panama & Europe, where they present concerts and masterclasses. Teri’s depth of experience and love of jazz is apparent when she brings all her talents to live performances, the recording studio, and through her moving lyrics and award-winning compositions. She has recorded numerous CDs as a bandleader and has been sharing her knowledge and inspiration with her diverse students. Her recordings have all met with high critical acclaim, as have her live performances at festivals and top New York jazz spots (Birdland, Kitano, Dizzy’s, Mezzrow, Jazz Standard). She currently is showcasing her new Piano Trio as well as releasing a new recording with SHARP 5, a newly-formed Brazilian Jazz band.
STEVE EINERSON (Pianist)
Pianist Steve Einerson originally hails from Milwaukee, WI, where he spent three formative years studying with David Hazeltine. After freelancing in the Milwaukee/Chicago circuit for several years, he relocated to New York City in 2004, fresh off the heels of being selected as a finalist to compete in the national jazz piano competition sponsored by the American Pianists Association. Whether it’s solo piano, small groups or big bands, Steve now finds his services in NYC in high demand and has performed at venues and jazz festivals across the country and around the world. A sampling of some of the musicians he’s had the privilege of working with include Marlena Shaw, Joe Farnsworth, Philip Harper, Killer Ray Appleton, Slide Hampton, Ian Hendrickson-Smith, John Dokes, Hilary Gardner, the George Gee Orchestra, and the Cab Calloway Orchestra.
JOHN MENEGON (Bassist, Composer, Arranger)
Menegon is a jazz bassist, but is also a guitarist, arranger, singer, and composer. He began his career as a musician in Montreal before moving to New York City, where he spent ten years as bassist for two legendary tenor saxophonists, Dewey Redman and David “Fathead” Newman. This experience provided a solid foundation for Menegon to continue his explorations as a bandleader, composer and arranger, and he has been composing and arranging music throughout his career. Menegon has released five CDs as a bandleader and currently plays with jazz legend Joe Lovano as well as numerous others, and is a member of SHARP 5, a newly-formed Brazilian Jazz band.
