George Bouchard George Bouchard

George Bouchard was born in Buffalo, New York, and received a master's degree in Music Composition from Memphis State University in 1971.

He moved to New York in 1977 and began teaching at the college level, where he is now a full Professor at Nassau Community College, on Long Island.

He has been affiliated with the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Camps since coming to New York, and Jamey's company published George's popular and critically acclaimed book, Intermediate Jazz Improvisation.

From life experiences in the Big Apple and in the South, George gathered enough material to use for the stories in his recently released cd, Mellow Lane. He continues to teach, play, and travel to conduct jazz workshops in the summertime.

George lives with his son Derek, and their two cats, Sparkie and Vicki, in Westbury, NY.

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.
