Jason Prover

A rising star on the NYC music scene, Jason Prover already has an impressive resume at the age of 24. Raised in South Florida, Prover was introduced to music early in life by his parents. Choosing the trumpet at age 10, he was quickly enthralled by the instrument and began playing in school bands and with local musicians. Prover received a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from the University of Florida, studying under the guidance of Dr. Joyce F. Davis. At age 18, Prover became a founding member of the nationally touring band, Umoja Orchestra. He played with a number of other ensembles, as well, such as his Lower 13th Street Jazz Band and the blues-drenched music of Michael Claytor and Friends. At age 22, Prover was named Charter President of U.F.'s Jazz Appreciation Student Society/Jazz Collective. He also wrote a music column for the Fine Print Newspaper

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
