Alfred Sergel IV

Drummer and composer, Alfred Sergel IV, has shared the stage with Grammy award winning artists and recorded on numerous Billboard charting albums.

The energy and excitement Sergel has brought to audiences worldwide supporting other artists, he now brings to support his own original music which fuses pop melodic undertones within a modern jazz context.

Sergel's single “Y Closed” grabbed the attention of NPR Music and his latest release “Sleepless Journey”, a 6-track album, was the #1 most added album on the NACC jazz charts.

Performing regularly with his own band, Sergel also performs with Jason Upton, Noel Freidline, Maria Howell and Chad Lawson.

When he is not performing, Sergel is adjunct faculty at The Kings University in Dallas, TX and Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
