About

Ran Blake—pianist, composer, teacher, iconoclast.

Over 50 albums. Founding chair of New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation Department. MacArthur, Guggenheim and NEA fellowship recipient. Mentors include John Lewis, Oscar Peterson, William Russo, Gunther Schuller, Mal Waldron, Mary Lou Williams. Students include Don Byron, Matthew Shipp, John Medeski.
