Cliff Monear Duo
Cliff Monear is one of the busiest performing pianists in the Midwest. Cliff's cascading, instinctively right piano is always on the money, never intruding, but always bright and punctual in time and personal color shadings. He is a faculty member at Wayne State University, and a sales consultant for Steinway & Sons, Michigan and Ohio region.
“Monear’s breathy ideas leave lots of space, girding the music with exquisite tension. What gives the music personality is Monear’s suave touch, relaxed swing, fresh melodic and harmonic turns and the unpretentious way he draws on familiar influences.”
