Jeff Hall

When asked to describe vocalist Jeff Hall, the first words of reply are usually “incredible musician”. Immediately you know that you are dealing with a person who has more going for him than a singing voice, although the voice is a remarkable one. His fresh arrangements and treatment of jazz standards reveal a vocalist possessing both a musical mastery of the past, plus a risk-taking rush of bravado, serving to showcase his unique talents.

Born into a musical family just north of Baltimore, Maryland, singing and playing music came naturally. This love of music eventually led him to Towson University in Towson, Maryland, where he continued to study, sing, and play drums and percussion, receiving his Bachelor's Degree in Jazz/Commercial Performance. He followed that by earning a vocal scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts, where he furthered his education and continued to hone his skills.

Jeff has been featured on guitarist Ken Navarro’s After Dark and Pride and Joy CDs. His tours with the jazz vocal group “After Hours” include performing at both the Montreaux and North Sea Jazz Festivals and dates across Europe. As a member of the Nashville based jazz vocal group 3rd Coast Vocals (with a debut CD titled 3CV), he handles the arranging duties as well as adding the tenor voice to the spectacular quartet. Jeff continues to perform and record in Baltimore, Nashville and other cities, as well as arranging for vocal jazz ensembles and other individual artists

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
