Old Dogs & New Tricks
Michael Eldridge has been a professional pianist entertainer for over forty years in venues from single piano to jazz trios and quartets, to Las vegas style show groups. For the five years (2000-2005) he was house pianist at the Balsams Resort, in New Hampshire, he performed weekly jazz concerts as part of his job there. He also had the jazz trio at the Boulders Resort in Carefree, AZ. for two winter seasons, 1987-1988, 1988-1990 and was a member of a similar jazz quartet ensemble with saxaphonist, Michael Dunham, there for two more years 1995-1996,1996-1997. His unique single piano jazz, with the swing bass left hand is a groove to listen to. The interweaving of both hands with internal moving lines is unusual, to say the least. Look for his all original smooth jazz album in 2007, as well as his all original single piano composition album, 'Love In The Fall', now available here.
