Primary Instrument: Trumpet

A Southern California native, Elliot Deutsch is quickly making a name for himself on the L.A. jazz scene as a bandleader, composer, and trumpeter. Since March 2007, Deutsch has led the 17-piece Elliot Deutsch Big Band, acting as its director, primary composer, and featured soloist. At 26, Deutsch is already an accomplished young trumpeter of diverse experience. He has toured internationally with Solomon Burke of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and played extensively with The Mutaytor, the Bobby Rodriguez Latin Jazz Orchestra, Pato Banton and the Mystic Roots, and the L.A. Jewish Symphony. Elliot has also worked with respected musicians including B.B. King, Lalo Schifrin, Kenny Burrell, Les McCann, Hubert Laws, Jon Faddis, and Jason Mraz....

”Deutsch brings the same sort of fresh perspective and exuberance that Harry Connick Jr. displays in the late 1980's. Weeknight Music is brilliant, balancing a healthy look forward with clear reminiscence on where Jazz came from; all from a young man who sports what may be one of the brightest young talents in Jazz.” -Wildy Haskell (Wildy's World)

“According to Deutsch's bio, he has performed with Solomon Burke, Bobby Rodriguez' Latin Jazz Band, B.B. King, Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Burrell, among others, none of which would lead one to anticipate a big-band date as captivating and resourceful as Weeknight Music. But here it is, and Deutsch deserves a round of applause for marshaling (and recording) an ensemble of this caliber.” -Jack Bowers (AllAboutJazz)

“The Elliot Deutsch Big Band is one of the most exciting and innovative bands on the jazz scene today. This incredibly tight band, comprised of twenty something musicians, swing like seasoned pros but with a youthful heat that takes the audience on a wild ride.” -Barbara Brighton (Producer of YAJS)

“Great charts! Great players! An absolutely stunning band!” -Ruth Price (Founder of The Jazz Bakery)
