Pianist and composer Zack Clarke works in a wide range of forms, including electronic music, classical music and jazz improvisation. An active New York performer and session artist, Zack has played to audiences in the US, Europe and South America. Random Acts of Order, his debut release on Clean Feed Records, has gained recognition as a notable work in both US and international publications, including freejazzblog critic Rick Joines’ Top Ten for 2017 and the Best of Improvisation from Italy’s Percosi Musicali. He has also appeared in the top pianist selection by Gregory Applegate Edwards in the 2017 El Intruso International Critics’ Poll.  Zack’s second release on the Clean Feed label, entitled Mesophase, has drawn acclaim for its ability to unite through-composed ensemble performance, electronic music and improvisation in a captivating defiance of musical convention. A third release for jazz trio is scheduled for mid 2019.
