Description

Locally known as “Mike T”, Mike Telesmanick will be performing with Sal Perla on drums, DK Issitt on bass, and Paul Polanski on saxophone. Special guest, jazz vocalist nolia blue will share her sultry sounds as well. 

Mike plays the piano, vibraphone, drums, guitar and is also a composer, producer, arranger, sound designer, and vocalist. He describes his style as “classic jazz BeBop with an original, unique modern style.” 

He has spent 25 years as a jazz pianist performing in the US and internationally, playing solo or with his band. Mike has performed with the bassist for Tony Bennett, Marshall Wood; percussionist for John Coltrane, Juno Lewis; Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer Jack DeJohnette; Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano; and many others. 

Mike played regularly at some of the best-known jazz venues in Los Angeles, becoming Merv Griffin’s favorite pianist and has accompanied jazz greats Billy Higgins, Dexter Gordon, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, and others. In the mid-1990s his CD Illumination met with critical acclaim and, in 2004, his band won the award for Best Fusion Artist of the Year at the Long Beach Jazz Festival. 

Singer-songwriter nolia studied with opera legend Anna Maria Saritelli-DiPanni and vocal coach Seth Riggs, who mentored more than 100 Grammy-Award winning artists.
