All About Jazz
“A young mallet master” – JazzTimes Magazine
Sasha Berliner is a musician, composer, producer, and band leader from San Francisco now based in New York since 2016. Sasha released her debut alternative jazz album, “Azalea”, nominated for JazzTimes 2019 Readers’ Poll’s “Best New Release”, and featured by Jazz at Lincoln Center and the New York Times.
She has performed at NYC Winter Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, The Blue Note, Montreal Jazz Festival, and National Sawdust and has been featured by The SF Jazz Education Center, PBS News Hour, NPR, and The New York Times for both her musicianship and her activism.
In addition to touring internationally with Sasha Berliner Azalea, her recent notable performances and recordings have been with Tyshawn Sorey, Nicholas Payton, Christian McBride, and Quincy Davis. She is a faculty member at the MalletLab percussion intensive, where she gives masterclasses and clinics, as well as previously at esteemed universities like MSU Denver and Berklee College of Music.
Sasha was the 2020 Downbeat Critics’ Poll winner of the “Rising Star Vibraphone” category. She was both the first woman, and at 21, was the youngest individual in the poll’s history to be granted the win. She was more recently voted in the top ten vibraphonists for the 2021 and 2022 Downbeat Reader’s Polls, sharing a list with Joe Locke, Stefon Harris, and Joel Ross.
Sasha is also looking forward to releasing her second record, “Onyx”, with JMI Recordings in 2022, featuring Marcus Gilmore, Burniss Travis II, James Francies, and Jaleel Shaw..
