ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dr. Michael Torregano is a New Orleans-based Jazz pianist and educator who has been in love with music since he was a small child. He has earned three music degrees, including a doctorate in Music Education from Boston University, taught esteemed contemporary players like Nicholas Payton and Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, and has worked with well-known artists Allen Toussaint, Dave Bartholomew, Donald Harrison, Victor Goines, Rita Coolidge, Lowell Fulsom, and George Benson. He performed with his brother Joseph Torregano's quartet for 30 years and has led his own group for the last 20 years. He is about to release his fifth CD as a leader, Morning Inspiration, in July of 2019.

A pianist since the age of four, Michael is still motivated by music every day of his life. “I always have a different song on my mind from the moment I wake up,” he says, “Sometimes it's something I know and sometimes it's a new song that I'll work on later in the day.” His style blends Jazz, Traditional New Orleans Jazz, and Smooth Jazz into original music with memorable melodies and feel-good grooves that make people happy.

Influenced by iconic artists including Oscar Peterson, George Benson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Al Jarreau, Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, John Coltrane, and The Spinners, Michael has created a unique, personal sound. He’s drawn comparisons to Teddy Wilson, Joe Sample, and Herbie Hancock but isn’t easily defined by such simple measures. Michael’s ambitions are bigger than that. “My goal is to make people feel good about themselves and their current situations through music,” he says, speaking his truth. Dr. Michael Torregano has the skills, training, and intention needed to make this happen and is one of the finest musicians on the New Orleans scene. Visit him online at http://www.mikeyjazz.com.
