Jeremy Ledbetter

Canadian jazz pianist Jeremy Ledbetter is the driving force behind Caribbean Latin Jazz powerhouse CaneFire. Jeremy currently performs regularly with Cuban trumpeter Alexis Baro, Mark Kelso's Jazz Exiles, Venezuelan world/jazz singer Eliana Cuevas, and calypso superstar David Rudder. Jeremy’s newest project, the Jeremy Ledbetter Trio, features Canadian virtuosos Rich Brown and Larnell Lewis alongside Jeremy, and will release their debut album of explosive contemporary jazz in 2018.

An engaging and fiery performer whose music knows no boundaries, Canadian pianist Jeremy Ledbetter has made a career from travelling the far-flung corners of the globe in search of the most fascinating and unique musical ideas out there. An accomplished pianist, composer, and producer, Ledbetter has worked with some of the most prominent jazz artists in Brasil, Cuba, Venezuela, Trinidad, the USA, and Canada. Recording credits include Hermeto Pascoal (Brasil), David Rudder (Trinidad), Aquiles Baez (Venezuela), Andy Narell (USA), Alexis Baro (Cuba), Jane Bunnett (Canada). Ledbetter’s most recent production, “Golpes y Flores” by Venezuelan songstress Eliana Cuevas, won him World Music Producer of the Year honours at the 2018 Independent Music Awards.

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!
