LunÀtico is thrilled to host The Pat Bianchi Organ Duo featuring Sanah Kadoura on drums.
Pat is a Hammond B3 virtuoso who came to our attention through his work here with Scott Sharrard. We appear to have been late to the game however, as he is a two-time grammy nominated organist and winner of Downbeat Magazine’s 2016 rising star poll. His command of the instrument, harmonic prowess, rhythmic intensity and versatility are rivaled by few.
When Pat is not touring his own groups, he performs regularly with jazz guitar icon, Pat Martino and also continues to perform with NEA Jazz Master and saxophone legend, Lou Donaldson. Born in Rochester New York, Bianchi comes from a musically gifted family. He began playing organ at the age of 7 and was playing his first professional gigs by the age of 11. While having the honor to perform with such greats as: Red Holloway, Terell Stafford, Peter Bernstein, Dakota Staton, Chuck Loeb, Ralph Peterson, Tim Warfield, George Benson and many others. Bianchi has released six CD's as a leader and is also a featured artist on over 30 recordings. His newest release, "In The Moment”� (Which was #1 on Jazzweek Radio Charts and #2 for over 7 weeks) features an array of guests including Pat Martino, Kevin Mahogany, Joe Locke, Peter Bernstein, Paul Bollenback, Byron Landham, Carmen Intorre, Jr.
