Eliot Zigmund

Eliot Zigmund (dr): Bill Evans Trio, Lee Konitz & Warne Marsh: “Speak Low”

"Drummer Eliot Zigmund is still likely best known for his tenure in the Bill Evans Trio of the mid-'70s and later work in Michel Petrucciani's trio" (Ken Dryden, AMG) and he's also recording as a bandleader.
"Born 1945 in the Bronx, Eliot grew up in the fertile New York jazz scene of the 50’s and 60’s and began playing professionally at the age of 15 with an older brother who was an aspiring jazz guitarist. He studied music at both the Mannes College of Music and at the City College of New York and upon receiving his degree from CCNY in 1968, he devoted himself to pursuing his dream of becoming a jazz musician. He currently resides in Teaneck, New Jersey with his wife Anna." (from Zigmund's homepage)
