The Charles Blenzig Quartet
Charles Blenzig is a pianist, composer, arranger, and percussionist who slips effortlessly among musical styles while retaining his own distinct sound. Born in the Bronx, and now residing in Manhattan, he has been a part of the New York City Jazz scene for over 30 years. In the late 80's his first real visible gig was with the Gil Evans Orchestra which performed every Monday night at the now-defunct Sweet Basil Jazz Club in N.Y.C. It was there that Blenzig had the opportunity to play with some of the finest Jazz Musicians in the world including Lou Soloff, Hiram Bullock, Delmar Brown, Mark Egan, Dave Taylor, George Adams, and Gil Goldstein. In the late 90s, he hosted The Late Night Session at the iconic Blue Note Jazz Club in the heart of Greenwich Village. The Jam Session was a steady gig for eight years which made him a recognizable face in the Jazz community as well as introducing him to scores of both seasoned and up and coming musicians from around the globe. Many of his private students got their first NYC performance at the session.
