“One of the main reasons which encouraged me to buy a Kurzweil K2600s was the perfect sampling of the real piano sound ,its was amazing for those years,I never forget those floppy discs,Now I play with Artis7 and i think its a door to a new world of sounds.”
– Reza Tajbakhsh
Reza Tajbakhsh is a distinguished Iranian pianist, composer, arranger, producer and band leader.
As the leader of a jazz trio named “E-Jazz”, he has performed in a number of successful concerts in the great Vahdat Hall in his hometown Tehran, Iran. His repertoire contains standard jazz along with some of his own compositions.
Reza’s performances are famous for his creative combination of communication and instructive ways he brings to the audience. As a part of his 2 hour concerts he usually plays a riff to the crowd and ask them to sing/hum along with it, then he manipulates that riff by adding other creative elements right on the fly!
