Artist's Website

Described as “The real deal” by All About Jazz, and “a sensational pianist, and brilliant young musician” by the Buffalo News, pianist Adam Kromelow is making a strong name for himself in today’s music scene. Originally from the north suburbs of Chicago, Adam grew up listening to all kinds of music, and fostered a love for playing piano at an early age. When he was eighteen-years-old, he moved to New York City to study at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music from which he graduated in 2011. In school he was extremely fortunate to study with modern jazz piano icons Jason Moran and Vijay Iyer.

Adam’s trio, KROM, has been turning heads with the release of their debut album “Youngblood” on ZOHO Records. This album, which was produced by GRAMMY-winning pianist Arturo O’Farrill, reached number fourteen on the College Music Journal radio charts and has been widely acclaimed by critics. It was picked as one of the Top Ten CDs of 2012 by the Philadelphia Inquirer, named the Debut Album of the Year by Nippertown Magazine, and hailed as “one of the most captivating discs by a jazz trio in years” by the Toledo Blade. The Adam Kromelow Trio recently performed at New York’s famed Paramount Theater as an opening act for the world-renowned rock/world music group Rusted Root.

Aside from his trio, Adam has been performing actively throughout the country with numerous different ensembles. In the winter of 2010, he made his debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a guest soloist for their Welcome Yule concerts at Chicago’s Symphony Hall. In addition, Adam was selected by pianist Brad Mehldau to perform in his solo piano master class held by the Carnegie Hall Professional Training Workshop. Other solo credentials include solo piano concerts at the Chicago’s Skokie Theatre, and New York’s 92nd St. Y’s Jazz in July master class let by pianist Bill Charlap. A life-long fan of rock music, Adam is also the co-founder of The Genesis Piano Project. This project, formed with pianist Angelo Di Loreto, tours the United States performing duo piano arrangements of the incredible music of Genesis.

Adam has had the honor of performing with stage with such jazz luminaries as Bob Mintzer, Jon Irabagon, and DJ Logic, and is the current touring pianist with popular R&B singer and America’s Got Talent finalist Alice Tan Ridley. Adam has performed at prestigious venues such as New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club, Birdland Jazz Club, and the Jazz Gallery, Chicago’s Jazz Showcase, the San Jose Jazz Festival and Hollywood’s Catalina’s Jazz Club. His piano playing has earned him numerous awards including the Illinois Music Educators Association Outstanding Soloist award, the Downbeat Magazine award for outstanding jazz performance, and the Manhattan School of Music President's award.

Aside from performing, Adam is an active educator and composer. He was recently commissioned to write a piece for New York’s Symphony Space’s resident big band, the Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance for their New Music concert series. Adam also works with this band as an educator, teaching in their high school music programs. Aside from teaching in schools, Adam also runs his own private-lesson studio. He has given piano and improvisation master classes at high schools throughout the country, and was a Teacher’s Assistant in the Manhattan School of Music Theory and Ear-Training departments.
