About Bill Cornish
Keyboardist Bill Cornish’s music is an eclectic blend of styles. Heavily influenced by many genres, including jazz, orchestral and world music, he always brings his diverse musical background to bear on anything he does.
Of his most recent solo album, Sojourn, JazzReview.com says, “…a truly diverse and illustrative project. It proves worthy of its boast that it’s an exercise in cinematic storytelling and that Cornish’s music defies easy categorization. There are strong flirts with blues, jazz, and world touches.”
Bill is currently the keyboardist for a new jazz-fusion recording project entitled The Odd Get Even featuring Ike Turner alumni drummer Bill Ray and the rock project The Thomas Connor Band.
Over the years, Bill has been the keyboardist for Zindu (improvisational groove fusion), Will Sumner’s Tropic Zone (latin influenced jazz), and Willovalot (smooth jazz and funk). From the early 80s through the mid-90s, he was keyboardist for Crystal, a band with whom he spent twelve years touring throughout the western United States, Alaska and Japan. During that time he opened for artists such as Kansas, Steelheart, Joan Jett, Steppenwolf, Firehouse, The Romantics, Pat Travers, and many others. The Crystal album Collection was among the top ten selling melodic rock CDs for German distributor AOR Heaven in the year 2000.
