Jeff Perry

Jazz guitarist Jeff Perry has a “personal voice that encompasses the intelligence of jazz with the emotion of the blues and the romanticism of Brazilian music.”

Perry’s musical travels have found him playing at top Jazz Clubs, Gospel churches, concert halls, music festivals, for the likes of US Senators, Fortune 500 CEOs, and Chicago Mayors. He has also played at homeless shelters, prisons, and on the street in front of Wrigley Field. You could say Perry's blend of jazz, blues, bossa nova, and soul connects with people from all walks of life.

Schooled both “on the street” and at the county's top music schools -Berklee College of Music, Boston MA and the American Conservator, Chicago, IL--the guitarist has been influenced by a wide variety of music including Dixieland, swing, Bossa Nova, be bop, cool jazz and pop and rock music. He skillfully combines these influences to create a unique and inviting sound--a “fusion guitarist in the best sense of the word” according to Blues News magazine.
