About Ari Hoenig:

Ari Hoenig, born on November 13, 1973, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was raised in a musical household with a father who was a conductor and classical singer, and a mother who was a violinist and pianist. His early exposure to music led him to begin studying the violin and piano at the age of four. At twelve, he discovered his passion for drumming and quickly became a prominent figure in the Philadelphia jazz scene.

Hoenig continued his musical education at the University of North Texas before transferring to William Paterson College in northern New Jersey, where he had the opportunity to perform with legendary jazz organist Shirley Scott. In pursuit of his musical aspirations, he moved to New York City, where he collaborated with esteemed musicians such as Jean Michel Pilc, Chris Potter, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and Mike Stern.

Known for his dynamic and innovative drumming style characterized by complex rhythms and melodic sensibility, Hoenig quickly gained acclaim as one of the most innovative drummers of his generation. In addition to his work as a performer, he is deeply committed to music education, serving as a faculty member at New York University and the New School for Social Research. Hoenig has authored instructional books and released educational videos, sharing valuable insights into his approach to drumming and rhythm.

Throughout his career, Hoenig has released several solo albums, including "Time Travels" and "The Life Of A Day," showcasing his diverse musical influences and compositional prowess. He has also collaborated on numerous projects, including the formation of the Ari Hoenig Quartet, which has released acclaimed albums such as "The Painter" and "Kinetic Hues."

In addition to his quartet work, Hoenig has explored various musical avenues, collaborating with artists such as Tigran Hamasyan, Gilad Hekselman, and Orlando Le Fleming. He has also co-led projects with Chris Potter, Edmar Casteneda, JD Walter, and Dan Weiss, expanding his musical horizons.
