Currently living in NYC, Pat Bianchi is one of the most in-demand jazz organists on the scene today. As a sideman, Bianchi has performed with a “who’s who” of venerable greats, including Lou Donaldson, Joey DeFrancesco, George Benson, Harvey Mason, Javon Jackson, Mark Whitfield and Terell Stafford. Pat has also had the distinct opportunity to perform on a regular basis with his mentor Joey DeFrancesco, playing both keyboards and organ.
Currently Bianchi tours with both The Lou Donaldson Quartet and Pat Martino Trio. He is also a member of saxophonist Tim Warfield’s organ quartet; co-leads the Unity Project, a tribute to Larry Young, with drummer Ralph Peterson Jr.; and often performs nationally with his own trio and quartet. He has also released two CDs as a leader: East Coast Roots (Jazzed Media) and Back Home, which was recently released by Doodlin’ Records.
