Jeffrey Fisher

Currently performing as jazz/world fusion pianist 7/15/16 Highland Springs Resort Grand Oak Steakhouse with drummer Jennifer Vallely

Fisher has performed with jazz great Frank Morgan, the Thelonius Monk-inspired traditional jazz group Evidence Quartet, the Charles Connally Texas Blues Band, Stax Records vocalist Lee Sain, folksinger Sun-Day Martinez, Spanish music legend Antonio Apodaca, world-music bandleader Achyutan, and New Mexico's Trio Jalapeno, among others. Fisher even performed Gaelic music on ice instruments at a ski resort situated at 11,000-feet elevation.

Training

Beyond the world of music, Jeffrey is a truly eclectic person. He is an accomplished painter (oils and watercolors) who has exhibited in both museums and galleries. He has published six volumes of poetry and five books on Chinese philosophy and martial arts (Amazon). He teaches T'ai Chi Chuan; gives acupressure, reiki, reflexology and auricular medicine treatments; and lectures widely on nutrition, herbology and healing. Over the years he has taught a wide variety of skills to others including music, painting, writing, cooking, mathematics, philosophy, and general “educational improvement.” When he wasn't making a living playing music, Jeffrey worked at a variety of jobs including designing and building stage sets off-Broadway, being a motorcycle messenger in New York City, tuning pianos, working in a print-shop and book-bindery in San Francisco, “bucking hay” (stacking bales), picking cherries, cleaning acequias (irrigation ditches) in New Mexico, running art galleries, framing pictures, and building houses (and other construction jobs).
