Music Professor Releases New Album

Ted Piltzecker’s new album Brindica reflects cultural influences from Brazil, India, Africa, Bali, Cuba, Puerto Rico, New Orleans and Harlem.

As a born-again vibraphonist, Ted has performed with many of the great names in jazz, including guitarists Gene Bertoncini and Vic Juris, bassists Rufus Reid and Andy Simpkins, drummers Lewis Nash, Dennis Mackrel and Clarence Penn, pianists Jim McNeeley, John Hicks and Bill Charlap, and saxophonists Chris Potter and Javon Jackson.

The album also features Conservatory of Music faculty Jon Faddis, Ralph Lalama, Gary Smulyan, Tara Helen O’Connor, Ayako Oshima, and Dave Lewitt as well as alumni Matt Hall, Taylor Burgess and Angel Lau.
