Mike Eckroth


This week’s guest is one of my favorite musicians in NYC, the amazing Mike Eckroth. Mike is a prolific pianist/composer who may have one of the most diverse and eclectic resumes to speak of. He has played with everyone from top jazz artists including John Scofield and Ron McClure, various Cuban, Salsa and South American artist such as Ralph Irizarry and Festejation, to his own groups Peliroja, La Voz De Tres and Melaza to name a few. I was able to meet Mike on the streets of Astoria to quickly discuss where his unique curiousity and affinity for world music was born, and where it has ultimately taken him in his career and life.
