E.L. Mahon

Raised on cornbread, greens and fried chicken, this country boy has come full circle. Fargo, Arkansas is home but now he calls Colorado his ‘back home’ spot. After living in Hawaii “again” from 1999 to 2003, and basically calling it quits with his music career, he began writing again in 2003 thanks in part to a birthday party early that year in Hawaii at the home of one of his long time friends and musician buddies. The focus now is on his own genre of music appropriately named, “NueVision Jazz”. Classically trained on oboe and credited with being one of the youngest members of The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra at the age of 13, E.L. retired from ALL performing including [playing saxes and keyboards] back in 1991 after nearly 30 years and now enjoys his time with his wife Debra. Between 1976-1991 E.L. was Bandleader/Manager of several Top 40/R&B Bands performing in the U.S., Hawaii, Guam, The Phillipines, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, Puerto Rico, Guantanamo Bay Cuba and Panama. His bands have opened for Roy Ayers, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Bobby BLue Bland, Syl Johnson, Lou Rawls, Chaka Kahn, The Guess Who, and numerous other groups during the 70's & 80's. He has come out of retirement to play saxes on his compositions. The music he writes is not mainstream jazz, but is a combination of many aspects of the jazz genre with a unique twist. The music moves the soul and enlightens the mind. This is his passion! NueVision Jazz {Additional Music Studies} University of Arkansas @ Little Rock, Ar. Berklee College of Music Boston,Mass.
