Tigran Hamasyan’s Bold Interpretations of New Jazz

Tigran Hamasyan is an Armenian jazz pianist whose works are strongly influenced by the Armenian folk tradition, often using its scales and modalities. In addition, he is much influenced by American jazz and progressive rock. The result is an inimitable combination of style with homage to Yann Tiersen and Ólafur Arnalds. Here are some of my favorite tracks.

1. The Poet


2. The Cave of Rebirth


3. Fides Tua


4. Shadow Theater


5. Vardavar
