Jazz Piano is Mac Chrupcala's vehicle of expression

At the Sarasota Jazz Club with bassist, John Lamb.


It will take just a few moments to comprehend the depth of talent and pathos that combine to make an audible work of art. In a time where innovation can translate to non-musicality - Mac Chrupcala shines with sensibility and spontaneity. Whether you experience his talent in a live performance or through one of his recordings, you will be moved...you will want to hear more.

Mac's talent could take him around the world. Yet, his world of jazz exists very nicely in Newport, Rhode Island. He has a successful jazz showcase at The Atlantic Beach Club every Sunday which features the very best players in the area accompanied by his tried and true trio (Artie Cabral on drums and Alan Bernstein on bass). This well-attended jazz series has proven to be an incredible true-jazz platform and promises to validate jazz as an art form for another season. In an area that boasts jazz as an attraction, Mac Chrupcala is at home.

Jazz Reviews

  • "Mac Chrupcala brings an uncommon sort of graceful pleasure to his piano playing, his notes tumbling forth or inching along in a most intelligent and interesting manor. Blue Moon, with his trio's creative revitalization of standards and little-known gems - (plus one original) is well worth spending time with!"

  • "The Mac Chrupcala Blue Moon disc is excellent! This is definitely one of the best mainstream piano trio discs I've heard in a long time; his style really appeals to me - dense but swinging, accessible but interesting.

  • "Mac Chrupcala has Oscar Peterson's amazing facility for dancing over the keys at top speed, but he always manages to stay in groove of his motion."
