A longtime sideman, especially with Sonny Rollins, Tag Soskin has just had rare possibilities to business lead his own periods. He began acquiring piano lessons when he was seven. Although he afterwards regarded Cedar Walton to become his most significant influence, Soskin in fact spent his teenage years playing frequently with R&B rings. He studied traditional music at Colorado Condition School in 1971 but used in the Berklee College of Music the next calendar year. In 1975, he transferred to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA where he caused Azteca, Joe Henderson, Costs Summers, Pete Escovedo, and Billy Cobham, touring using the CBS All-Stars, an organization that also included Cobham, Tom Scott, Steve Khan, and Alphonso Johnson. During 1978-’90 and sometimes soon after, Soskin was an associate of Sonny Rollins’ music group, recording many pieces with the fantastic tenor. Since that time he has continued to be mixed up in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA Bay region. Soskin has documented several dates being a leader, including Tempo Eyesight for Prestige (1979), and Single Piano for Vartan Jazz (1996).
