Pianist, composer, arranger, teacher, producer-these are some of the faces Erik Deutsch has shown the world. An intensely creative and talented player, he has the ability to lend his sound to an impressive array of musical endeavors. After a decade in Colorado, Erik is now a resident of Brooklyn, New York. As a leader, his current projects include County Road X, Triangle, and the new Erik Deutsch Band, and his newest release Fingerprint. As a sideman: Charlie Hunter Trio, Ron Miles Band, Sonya Vallet and Los Profugos Galacticos, Jessica Lurie Ensemble, Monika H Band, and a partnership with house music guru Mr. V. In August of 2007, Erik released his latest album, Fingerprint, featuring Ron Miles, Jenny Scheinman, Allison Miller, Todd Sickafoose, Ross Martin, and Janet Feder, the CD showcases nine of Deutsch's new compositions. Erik's group County Road X, formed in 2001, performs cinematic-Americana music (imagine a Stanley Kubrick/Sergio Leone double-feature with an electric Miles Davis soundtrack). CRX was featured at the 2006 Green Apple Music Festival in NYC. Triangle, a piano trio featuring Art Lande on drums, is another of Deutsch's long-term projects. The group focuses on an expansive repertoire while exploring modern rhythm and harmony.
