Born in 1979 in Israel and spending his childhood in Italy, Ehud has since earned his place among pianist of the New York City jazz scene.
With six titles as a leader, all on Posi-Tone, a quintet date Lockout (2007) with Grant Stewart and Ryan Kisor, a piano trio Swing Set (2008), Modern Life (2010) which is a quartet session with saxophonist Harry Allen, Organic (2010) with Asherie on organ, and Upper West Side (2012) and Lower East Side (2013) which are duo records with Harry Allen. Ehud Asherie has established himself as one of the brightest emerging keyboard playing talents on the jazz scene today.
Ehud actively studies and performs the music of the stride piano masters of the early 20th century, and his playing is notably inspired by pianists such as James P. Johnson, Erroll Garner, Thelonius Monk, as well as by classical music. Ehud enriches his full melodic lines and complex rhythmic riffs with elements from his immense trove of musical quotes.
Musicians and critics have noted that such versatility and musical knowledge of the great songs and the music of the early age of jazz are unusual for younger keyboardist today. The future is bright for Ehud Asherie and the sky is the limit, as he uses his talent and knowledge of the music he loves to swing his way into the hearts and minds of jazz fans.
