Elchin Shirinov
Elchin Shirinov is a jazz pianist, composer and arranger, originally from Azerbaijan. Most recently he was included in All About Jazz's December 2022 poll of the top 200 favourite living pianists in the world.

From 2018 to Oct 2022 he was a member of the famous jazz double bassist Avishai Cohen's trio, during which time he recorded 3 albums as part of the trio and toured internationally at festivals and venues such as Blue Note New York jazz club, Ronnie Scott’s jazz club, Blue Note Tokyo jazz club, Tokyo Jazz festival, Jazz a Vienne, Jazz in Marciac, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Berlin Philharmonie concert hall, Paris Jazz festival. The most recent album Shifting Sands was chosen as Album of the Month in The Guardian newspaper.

"The pianist is Elchin Shirinov, the thoughtful but forceful Azerbaijani musician who played on both Two Roses and Arvoles...Cohen's vivacious bass improv and Shirinov's contrastingly imperturbable lyricism glow through this fine set - and if the new tunes add few surprises to the leader's signature songbook, the playing is incandescent.” John Fordham, The Guardian
