GeoffreyLappGeoff Lapp is a jazz pianist of the swinging variety and a cornerstone of the Montreal jazz scene since the mid- 80’s. Extended gigs at many of the town’s premiere night spots have established him as a hot draw for aficionados in search of that heady space where soulful and cerebral fuse. Geoff draws upon a wide palette of jazz moods, and delivers a sound that is tasteful, innovative, and infectiously swinging.
Born in Montreal in 1953, Geoff Lapp was trained in the classical tradition and studied at McGill University under widely respected jazz pianist Art Maiste. During the early years of his career, he gained experience in the pop music world touring with the likes of Michel Pagliaro. From the early ’80s onwards, he devoted himself fully to the jazz idiom. As one of Canada’s most accomplished pianists/composers, Geoff Lapp became a sought-after accompanist for a host of top Canadian performers.
 In addition to his own trio work, Geoff has performed and/or recorded with renowned jazzmen such as Paquito d’Rivera, Don Menza, Richie Cole, Bob Mover, Sonny Fortune, and Slide Hampton, among others. He has also performed extensively in festivals and clubs worldwide. At home in Quebec, he is a mainstay on the vibrant jazz scene, and has performed with a panoply of local jazz luminaries.
