    Profile

    Keyboard player Adam Holzman was a member of the Miles Davis Band from 1985 to 1989. He performed with the trumpet legend in more than 200 concerts worldwide and can be heard on the albums "Tutu," "Live Around the World,” “Rubberband” and "Complete Montreux” box set (Warner Bros.). In 1988 he became Miles's musical director. Adam won an award from the Jazz Journalists Association for his work co-producing (with Bob Belden) the 6 CD Miles Davis boxset, "The Cellar Door Sessions" (Sony).

    Adam has also performed and recorded extensively with Grover Washington, Jr., Chaka Khan, Wayne Shorter, Michel Petrucciani, Steps Ahead, Wallace Roney and many others. Since 2011 Adam has been touring and recording with British rocker Steven Wilson, and can be heard on 
    award-winning albums “Hand.Cannot.Erase” and “The Raven That Refused To Sing.”

    For his session and live performances, Adam was praised by the New York Times for "innovative keyboard work," and by Keyboard magazine as "one of the most promising synth soloists." Adam was nominated for 'best electric jazz keyboard player' by Keyboard magazine, and has been a regular finalist in the Prog Magazine keyboard player’s poll for the past 8 years. 

    Adam has released 10 CDs as a solo artist and with his own band, Adam Holzman & Brave New World. His most recent album is “Truth Decay” (distributed by Sony/The Orchard), which features many guest artists and was met with critical acclaim.
