[Listen to Grand Pianoramax in the Nextplayer]

Winner of the first Montreux Jazz Festival International Piano Solo Competition, Leo Tardin conceived Grand Pianoramax as a live keyboards/drums duo with guest MCs/vocalists, blending powerful analog-synth bass, syncopated keys, organic drumming and freestyle spoken word/rap with occasional vocal guests.

Tailored to explore hybrid stylistic directions in their most essential renditions, Tardin developed the Grand Pianoramax project by joining forces with first-class NYC drummers such as Deantoni Parks (Kudu, The Mars Volta, Meshell Ndegeocello), Jojo Mayer and Adam Deitch (Talib Kweli, John Scofield). To add to the unique sound, Tardin invited in some of the most creative poets/MCs on the scene today, including Americans Mike Ladd, Celena Glenn (Coco Rosie), Invincible (PPP) and French hip-hop/folk artist Spleen.
