Levon Mikaelian

United Shades Of Artistry, the self-titled debut recording of a quartet founded in 2014 by pianist and composer Levon Mikaelian, mines the riches found in both milieu. A native of Yerevan, Aremenia, whose family emigrated to the U.S. after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Mikaelian’s band features guitarist John Lee, bassist Blake Meisterand Nigerian drummer Tosin Aribisala. Each member contributes a unique and personal instrumental vision and voice and together they deliver an eloquent musical statement that fuses elements of modern jazz, rock, Eastern European, Latin and African music and rhythms. 

- All About Jazz

 

A global music excursion taking the harmonic road less traveled, a release of balance and depth!

-Brent Black

 

Armenian drive, African rhythm and American creativity. God, I love it when boys from different sandboxes get together and play – don’t you?

Armenian drive, African rhythm and American creativity. God, I love it when boys from different sandboxes get together and play – don’t you? Hah! I don’t know what Levon intends to do with touring in support of his work – most of these compositions are original and beg to be heard – but one thing is sure. When more discerning ears hear “United Shades of Artistry”, their appetite for creative Jazz will be re-awakened.
