"Los Angeles-based pianist/keyboardist Isamu McGregor's versatility has helped him to become an extremely in-demand musician and MD around the globe. Described as a "pianist for the new generation" and "a jazz pianist and keyboard player of the first order", Isamu maintains a busy touring schedule as a sideman while continuing to compose and perform his own music.
Over the years, he has had the good fortune to share the stage with a "dizzying variety of collaborators" across a multitude of genres, including Richard Bona, Colbie Caillat, Bennie Maupin, Sadao Watanabe, Natalia Lafourcade, Patti Austin, GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Wayne Krantz, Virgil Donati, Ari Hoenig, Lenny Pickett, Gregoire Maret, Seamus Blake, Nir Felder and many more. He has toured extensively since 2014, having performed in over 30 countries.
McGregor has released two albums - Resonance (2017) and Live at the Baked Potato (2012) - that have both received a warm global reception from critics. Resonance features appearances by bass clarinetist Bennie Maupin and saxophonist Seamus Blake, along with the core quartet that McGregor has recorded with on both albums: Evan Marien (bass), Gene Coye (drums) and Deen Anbar (guitar).
