“I am very pleased to welcome Eliot Zigmund—an extraordinary talent in the jazz world—to the Parrish,” said Corinne Erni, Curator of Special Projects.

Zigmund, a highly regarded drummer and session musician, has been featured at top New York jazz clubs for decades and praised for his “feather touch response” (Jazziz) and “fluid, relaxed urgency” (Musician).

He relocated  to California, playing with Ron McClureSteve SwallowArt LandeMike NockMel Martin, and Vince Guaraldi. He returned to New York City in 1974, and performed with Evans (1975 to 1978), featured on four of the pianists recordings including You Must Believe in Spring, as well as with Eddie GómezBennie WallaceRichard BeirachJim Hall,  Fred Hersch, and Red Mitchell.

Zigmund performed regularly with Don Friedman (1979 to 1984), and then joined a trio with Michel Petrucciani until the late 1980s. He worked both as a leader in small ensembles and as a sideman with Gary Peacock (1980), Carl Barry (1982), Keith Greko (1985), Eiji Nakayama (1988), and Stefan Karlsson (1995).
