Jeff Gaeth Jeff Gaeth

Jeff began playing music at the age of 14 in high school. In addition to private lessons in saxophone, harmony, theory, arranging and composition, he also played in numerous bands in and around L.A. and attended the University of California at Los Angeles UCLA.

After moving to Los Angeles in 1974 Jeff began his professional career working as a sideman with many “big” names in the music industry including the great Ray Charles, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Marley and the Wailers and legendary jazz musician Horace Henderson to name a few. Jeff also spent a number of years as a “session man” in many L.A. studios contributing to everything from commercials to sound tracks.

Jeff has lived in and contributed to the music scenes in Denver, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles and San Diego.

A native of western New York, Jeff now makes his home with his wife, Denni on the Big Island of Hawaii.

In 2005 Jeff released his first solo album ‘Trade Secrets’. “It was a collection of tunes I wrote through the years that just had to be recorded”. The album has been well received especially in Europe.

Jeff's 2008 CD release ‘Paradise Park’ has found a rewarding common ground through his love for jazz, latin and smooth melodies. “Paradise Park was a satisfying step forward, a musical reflection of my life and personal experiences”.

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.
