Romantic jazz pianist Jacob Koller leads cinematic piano performances

The INNERview sits down with American jazz pianist Jacob Koller who is currently performing in Japan. He recently released a new album titled "Jacob Koller" and he's a promising pianist who is touching the global audience with his performances.

He expresses a wide array of classical and jazz pieces. He began jazz piano when he was a teenager, and was the finalist at the Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz in 2007. The Cole Porter Fellowship Awards are held once every four years, and Jacob Koller's talents were recognized.

Jazz is very special to Jacob Koller. He said "While learning jazz, my lifestyle and thoughts became more flexible. I just played the way I wanted to, and I could really let myself go through jazz performances."

He showed a lot of potential in Japan, which is considered a jazz power house. He moved to Japan in 2009 and released the album "Falling in Love with Chopin" in 2010. This album pays tribute to Frédéric Chopin. He released 4CDs in the "Cinematic Piano" series from 2011 to 2014 and was in the limelight as a performer, but also as a composer and an arranger.

Back in 2015, he gained tremendous fame when he pushed aside many talented pianists and musicians to come in first place in the piano grand prix on
TV Asahi's popular program "Kanjani no Shiwake Eito."

When asked about winning on that program, he said "There were tons of cameras around the piano, and I did feel pressured as I had to play without making a single mistake. But, when I won, I felt confident that I could perform well in any kind of a situation."

He has been active in Korea since 2014, and has been greeting Korean audiences through over 10 performances here. He is preparing a new concert in March, so let's begin The INNERview with a live performance by jazz pianist Jacob Koller.
