Gail Ford Gail Ford

Happened on playing jazz oboe by accident, and now play & write original music, and arrange covers; everything from Yusuf Lateef to Diana Krall, Greg Lake and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Play in concert & wind bands, and in solo gigs. Extending the oboe's sound and language to add new colours to other styles - a new market for new audiences. On the hunt for a compatible/ sympathetic and generally on my wavelength piano/keys player, drummer & string bass player to form a jazz oboe quartet. After all, the market's not exactly saturated with them.......

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
