Over the course of his career, John Escreet has earned a reputation as one of the most active and diverse pianist/composers working in jazz and improvised music. His prolific output is reflected over the course of 8 diverse and critically acclaimed albums - the most recent being his 2018 release Learn To Live, which was named by Downbeat Magazine as one of the best releases of 2018. Learn To Live is an epic and wide-ranging program of electronic and acoustic explorations, featuring an all star band of Nicholas Payton, Greg Osby, Matt Brewer and the 2-drum team of Eric Harland and Justin Brown. Escreet is also a much sought-after sideman. In recent years he has been mostly associated with the Grammy award-winning drummer Antonio Sanchez, recording on his 2013 Cam Jazz release New Life, 2015’s The Meridian Suite and 2019’s Lines In The Sand. He has toured extensively across the globe with Sanchez’s Migration band, becoming an integral part of that group’s sound and development.
