Jeremy Bacon is an extremely creative and dynamic jazz pianist, fusing the raw volcanic energy of Don Pullen (one of his first important teachers) with the more introspective style of Fred Hersch(one of his last). Jeremy has also studied intensive classical technique with Sophia Rosoff of the Abby Whiteside Foundation, and Edna Golandski of the Taubman institute. He has played all over the world with his own group and as a sideman with others, including Charles Fambrough, Frank Lacy, Jeff Tain Watts, Jeff Ballard, Mike Mossman, Ugonna Okegwo, Pat Martino, Ralph Bowen, Joe Ford, Billy Hart and Warren March, just to name a few. He is deeply grateful for the good fortune to be able to play this constantly evolving music.
