Sketchy Black Dog (feat. Misha Piatigorsky & Chris Wabich)

by Sketchy Black Dog

An explosive mix of classic rock and originals; sonic temptations that are both seductive and unpredictable.  This piano trio with string plays unique spins of Bowie, Zeppelin, Hendrix, and more - taking them to places both irreverent and fragile.

Album Notes
Experience the daring, explosive mix of classic rock and originals; sonic temptations that are both seductive and unpredictable.  This piano trio with string quartet plays unique spins of Bowie, Zeppelin, Hendrix, and more. Sketchy Black Dog takes timeless rock songs and originals to places both irreverent and fragile. 
Sketchy Black Dog is the brainchild of pianist Misha Piatigorsky and drummer Chris Wabich – both internationally recognized musicians.  
The virtuosic and super-creative Jazz pianist, Misha Piatigorsky, is no stranger to Jazz audiences, but you’ve never seen – or heard – him quite like this! The Russian born Piatigorsky fled from behind the Cold War-era Iron Curtain and moved with his family to New York. It didn’t take long for this Classical pianist to morph into one of the most innovative Jazz artists on the international scene, taking first place in the Thelonious Monk Composers Competition, and playing everything from Brazilian music to straight-up Jazz with Mark Murphy, Joe Lovano and Jon Faddis. Sketchy Black Dog is his current obsession - cranking out his original arrangements of Classic Rock tunes alongside his own award-winning compositions. Piatigorsky’s fiery performances leave audiences screaming for more.  
Chris Wabich has collaborated with the leading authorities in Jazz, World, and Rock music, including the Zappa family, Leonard Cohen, Sting, Nenette Evans (pianist Bill Evans' widow) and Omar Faruk Tekbilek.  This three-time Grammy nominated artist is known for his dynamic extremities, clarity, melodicism and power.  Wabich’s understanding and cross-pollination of genres is evident in his original voice, sought after by the likes of Ludacris to Stanley Jordan.  Aside from being the rudder for Sketchy, Chris frequents as music director/producer for LA based artists and full-scale theater productions.   His soundtrack credits include "Malcolm in the Middle", "American Idol", and work with film legend Lalo Shifrin.
Together Piatigorsky and Wabich have toured in Japan, Germany, Russia and throughout the USA and Canada, taking Sketchy Black Dog to Jazz and Rock clubs, Philharmonic halls, Opera houses, and even won over the crowd in one mistakenly booked lumberjack bar.

This debut album features bassists Jimmy Johnson on tracks 1 and 2, Sergio Brandão on tracks 4 and 7, and Danton Boller on all other tracks. Carmel Raz plays all violin and viola parts and Agnes Nagy plays all cello parts. All tracks arranged by Misha Piatigorsky. Produced by Misha Piatigorsky and Chris Wabich, and co-produced and mixed by the mad scientist Tristan Leral.
