The late jazz critic, Leonard Feather of the Los Angeles Times, said that, Cleveland has an engaging eclectic in Habian, everthing switches around from cut to cut: the size of the band, the genre of the music, the source of Habian's inspiration'. He began piano lessons at the age of nine and was composing music just a few years later with both classical and jazz mjusic being strong influences. He decided early on to integrate the two genres into his own unique style. Cliff has worked with such greats as Joe Lovano, Freddie Cole, Frank Morgan, Jane Ira Bloom and many others in addition to appearing on Good Morning America, and opened for such jazz legends as Mel Lewis and Dave Brubeck. He has also performed for many celebrities ranging from Wilt Chamberlain to Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. His international reputation began with a recording debut for Milestone/Fantasy Records. Two landmark recordings were produced, consisting primarily of original compositions, 'Tonal Paintings' and 'Manhattan Bridge'. His concert appearances have been global, including Russia, Thailand, and Panama. In addition to appearing in jazz festivals and educational clinics in the United States. Recently, Cliff became a 'piano coach to the stars' when he was asked to coach child actress/star Yara Shahidi for an upcoming piano playing part in the new 'I, Alex Cross' movie (due out in 2012).
