"Emily Bear: Only 11 years old, Emily is one of the most astonishing musical talents of our time; composing, orchestrating, and performing in a bewilderingly diverse collection of styles. At age 5, Emily made her concert debut at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago, playing a 40-minute solo program performing classical pieces side by side with jazz standards and her own compositions. She was invited to perform at the White House at age 6. Later that year, she opened for Ramsey Lewis and his Trio with a 30-minute set of her own. Her orchestral debut came at age 7, playing Mozart Piano Concerto no. 23, K488 and by age 8, she was playing concerts abroad in Italy and China. At the age of 9 she made her Carnegie Hall debut with a 110-piece orchestra, a 220-voice choir, and R&B soloists performing one of her compositions, “Peace. we are the future.”
Diversity: The Concord debut of piano prodigy Emily Bear, 2013’s Diversity features Bear playing her own compositions that touch upon jazz, classical, and new age sounds. Produced by the legendary Quincy Jones, Diversity is not Bear’s first album; however, it is her most mature release to date and showcases the cornucopia of talent she has been developing since she first began playing piano at two years of age. With Diversity, the 11-year-old Bear proves she is already a virtuoso on her chosen instrument and a star in the making. Using her own jazz trio handpicked by Quincy, Emily demonstrates both her versatility and an open-hearted melodic soul at the piano, writing all of the selections herself. “She’s the most delightful human being I’ve ever met in my life,” Quincy says. “And her music is the same way. I am at once astounded and inspired by the enormous talent that Emily embodies. With the ability to seamlessly move from Classical to Jazz and Be-bop, she shows as much musical prowess as pianists/composers twice her age, and I am thrilled to be working with her. She’s astounding, man ... she’s astounding. She plays like she’s 40 years old. She is the complete 360-degree package, and there are no limits to the musical heights she can reach.”
Diversity is #3 on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart!"
