About David Chesky

Pianist, composer, and label owner David Chesky is a sophisticated performer whose music encompasses the worlds of jazz, European classical, and Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and Latin traditions. A talented 20-something when he first debuted his big band in the early '80s, Chesky has gone on to establish himself as a highly regarded composer and arranger, releasing numerous albums from solo piano dates like 1996's The Fantasies and large-ensemble productions like 2007's Grammy-nominated Urban Concertos with the Symphony Orchestra of Norrlands Opera, to nuanced small group sessions like 2018's Trio in the New Harmonic: Aural Paintings. With 2021's Songs for a Broken World, he explored a wider orchestral and choral palette. Chesky's broad tastes are reflected in his work running the independent Chesky Records which he co-founded with his brother Norman Chesky. Together they have released albums by Ron Carter, Joe Henderson, Paquito D'Rivera, Larry Coryell, Macy Gray, Babatunde Olatunji, and others.
