“...a fresh-sounding, soulful endeavor...(Shulman's) approach to playing and composing has the potential to reach a wide-ranging audience while remaining mindful of artistic integrity.”
- JOHN BARRON, JAZZ REVIEW
San Francisco pianist/composer Adam Shulman presents an album of post-bop-inspired original compositions performed by a sextet of some of the Bay Area's most prominent jazz musicians. With a hard swinging group aesthetic and close harmonic writing inspired by the classic groups of Horace Silver and Art Blakey, Here/There offers bright new vehicles that embrace history while adding to the legacy of one of America's great jazz communities. With Mike Olmos, Patrick Wolff, Rob Roth, Smith Dobson and John Wiitala.
Adam Shulman has been a staple of the San Francisco Jazz scene since he moved to the city in 2002. Before the move, Adam was a student at UC Santa Cruz where he studied with the great pianist Smith Dobson and the trumpeter/arranger Ray Brown. He received his degree in classical performance under the tutelage of the Russian pianist Maria Ezerova. 

In addition to leading his own groups, Adam can also be seen as a sideman with countless bay area musicians and vocalists such as John Wiitala, Vince Lateano, Kitty Margolis, Andrew Speight, Dayna Stephens, Erik Jekabson, Gary Brown, Patrick Wolff, Faye Carrol, Ian Cary, and Mike Zilber among many others. 

Adam has played as a sideman with internationally renowned artists Stefon Harris, Willie Jones III, Miguel Zenon, Mark Murphy, Alan Harris, Luciana Souza, Paula West, Ratzo Harris, Larry Coryell, Sean Jones, Grant Stewart, Bobby Hutcherson and with the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
