“Jeff Baumeister is an artist deserving wider recognition, he is the newcomer alongside more established forward-thinking folks like Dave Douglas, Kenny Wheeler, Dave Holland, Bill Frisell, Tomasz Stanko and others - he's got his own thing happening that bodes well for the future.”- John Kelman, All About Jazz.com


Jeff earned degrees in Jazz Performance from William Paterson University (B.M.) and the University of the Arts (M.M.).

He also studied composing and arranging with McNeely and Manny Albam at the BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop in NYC
