Elijah Cole Elijah Cole

Elijah Cole is one of the premier young jazz musicians in the Washington, D.C. area. At the age of 16, he has already performed at the area's top jazz clubs, including Twins, HR-57, Blues Alley, and Dukem. As a member of the Capital Focus Jazz Band and the Jazz Academy Orchestra, he has traveled from New Orleans to San Diego, performing at the famous Preservation Hall and backing artists such as Terrell Stafford and Brian Lynch. Additionally, he has played with many of his influences on the guitar, including Russell Malone, John Pizzarelli, and Carl LeBlanc.

This year, Elijah has been selected as the guitarist in the 2015 Maryland All-State Jazz ensemble, for Jazz at Lincoln Center's summer institute for advanced jazz study, for the Brubeck Institute's Summer Jazz Colony, and as the alternate guitarist for the Jazz Band of America.

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.
