The Boston Globe calls Dan Tepfer "a brilliant young pianist and composer," while piano legend Martial Solal says he "already has everything it takes: harmonic sensitivity, jazz knowledge, melodic subtlety, and above all, a great originality." An American raised in Paris, Tepfer was classically trained before switching to jazz piano at the New England Conservatory of Music. In 2006, he was awarded both the first prize and audience prize at the Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition. Through the Kennedy Center's new partnership with the American Pianists Association, Tepfer comes to the Club as the APA's 2007 Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz.
