Born and raised in South Africa, Adam Glasser first appeared on the London scene in the mid-1980s leading his own piano trio playing modern jazz and township standards from his homeland. This enabled Adam to develop a great knowledge of and love for jazz standards and Broadway shows. Since then Adam has explored this repertoire on the chromatic harmonica and has now emerged as one of the UK’s leading jazz improvisers on this difficult and captivating instrument. Besides film and commercial sessions, Adam has performed live with international artists including Joe Zawinul, Sting, The Eurythmics and Incognito. There are not many exponents of jazz harmonica and very, very few indeed in Adam’s class, his style and repertoire cover an enormous range and his refreshing approach gives his performances a quality that is rare.
