George Colligan is a New York-based pianist, organist, drummer, trumpeter, teacher, and bandleader, hailed as “one of the best-kept secrets in jazz” by All About Jazz. An award-winning composer (Chamber Music America/Doris Duke Foundation grant recipient) and player (winner, Jazzconnect.com Jazz Competition), Colligan is highly in demand as a sideman, having worked with players both on the bandstand and in recording sessions. He has released 24 recordings full of his intelligent writing and impressive technique, with releasing his latest, The Endless Mysteries, in 2013. Colligan’s musical style showcases both his technique and restraint, incorporating everything from showtunes, to funk, free improvisation, and 20th-century classical music.
