Armen Donelian - piano
David Clark - acoustic bass
Georges Schuller - drums

Armen Donelian has performed and recorded since 1975 as a featured solo pianist, leader of his own quintet and trio, and with Jazz legends including Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, Paquito D?Rivera, Mongo Santamaria and Billy Harper. A tremendously talented pianist, Donelian has quietly created a body of work that at the very least is consistent, at best exhilarating. Donelian provides a constant stream of ideas and beauty that is hard to deny. Oasis, Donelian's latest work is a trio album, featuring David Clark on bass and George Schuller on drums.


Armen Donelian's resume is wide and deep, as leader, sideman, author, educator and (as a Fullbright Senior Scholar) cultural ambassador to Armenia, the land of his ancestors.
