Sketchy Black Dog
Sketchy Black Dog is the brainchild of pianist, Misha Piatigorsky, and drummer, Chris Wabich. Wabich lives in Los Angeles, where he has worked with the Zappa family, Sting, Stanley Jordan, Leonard Cohen, and Ludacris. Russian-born and New York based Piatigorsky is the winner of the Thelonious Monk Composers Competition, and is the music director for jazz legend Mark Murphy. Misha has appeared with Wynton Marsalis, Claudio Roditi, and Michael Brecker.
Since its formation, this piano trio with strings has sold out philharmonic halls throughout Russia and headlined the world famous Blue Note NYC and Baked Potato and Vibrato in Los Angeles. They have not yet, however, played Paris.
