Primary Instrument: Sax, tenor

John Farnsworth has performed and toured with a diverse and impressive roster of influential musicians. Even an abbreviated list of his collaborators is evidence of the respect John has gained from some of the greatest musicians from commercial, jazz, and Latin genres.

Whether touring with early jazz greats Illinois Jacquet or the Glenn Miller Orchestra, sharing a stage with jazz legends Cecil Payne, Slide Hampton or George Coleman in New York City's historic jazz venues, performing with legendary singer Aretha Franklin at the Radio City Music Hall, or appearing with pop sensations Alicia Keys and Rob Thomas on VH1, John Farnsworth is regarded as one of today's most exciting jazz artists.

“One of the most talented and gifted musicians I have encountered in my long career.” -Curtis Fuller, legendary trombonist

“John Farnsworth is one of the true unsung heroes in the music business. A consummate musician, he can do a great service to the world of music.” -Harold Mabern, acclaimed pianist
