Derek Bomback Derek Bomback

Derek Bomback brings a distinctive voice to jazz guitar. His career has taken him all over the world with performances on six of the seven continents. Vocalist Jay Jackson has said of Bomback’s playing: “Displayed a soulful patience that you don’t often find…” Bomback’s music combines influences from American and European jazz, to bring a fresh sound to his sophisticated, yet melodic playing.

Derek studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he received dual degrees in Jazz Composition and Guitar Performance in 2010. Shortly after moving back to Los Angeles, he was hired by Princess Cruise Lines where he is currently one of the company’s musical directors.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
