Edgar Steinitz grew up near the "Big Apple" saturated by arts and music. He frequented the Jazz scene in the 6-'s, and witnessed the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and Buddy Rich. When not working as a physician (for decades Associate Professor, University of Washington Rehab) he gives up the reflex hammer for his horns. Some have nicknamed him the 'Dancin' Doc' because of his double-major in Chemistry and Dance-Theater. For the past 12 years, Edgar has studied with David Friesen, among others, and is honored to co-produce and release this work of passion, and dedication, entitled Roots Unknown honoring dual Ashkenazi and Sephardic heritages. He regularly performs with Jazz Connection and On the Rock.
