Jeremy Noller

As a jazz drummer and world percussionist, Jeremy Noller represents both sides of a rare musical coin. Since his arrival in New York City in 2003, Jeremy has taken full advantage of the city’s diverse music scene, performing with many of the finest jazz musicians, contemporary percussionists, and West African drummers. For his debut album, Music Notes, Jeremy has brought together artists from these different musical realms to perform his original compositions and arrangements, which combine contemporary jazz and traditional West African rhythms. The result is an expression of Jeremy’s unique musical journey that reaches across boundaries to audiences of all walks of life.

Originally from Libertyville IL, Jeremy began studying percussion at the age of nine. A standout musician in high school, he won a music scholarship to the University of Illinois, where he studied classical percussion with William Moersch. He went on to the University of North Florida, where he explored his deepening love for jazz with pianist Kevin Bales and legendary saxophonist/educator Bunky Green. While at UNF, Jeremy won numerous scholarships and awards including a Downbeat Student Music Award for Outstanding Instrumental Group in 2002. After graduating with honors in 2003, he was awarded a scholarship to attend the Manhattan School of Music. There he completed a master’s degree in jazz studies under the tutelage of world-renown drummer John Riley.

“Jeremy Noller's new CD ‘Music Notes’ is joyously notable music. Jeremy's groovy compositions are beautifully performed by his cohorts and his hip drumming unifies and propels it all. Check it out.” - John Riley (drummer/educator/author)

“Jeremy Noller has produced one of the freshest CDs I've heard this year, it reaches across the barrier from jazz into world music.” “...fresh, unpredictable and beautiful.” - Bunky Green (saxophonist/educator)

“With the ability to regenerate a traditional concept into a modern configuration, Noller keeps his listener's intrigue in the very bi-lingual palm of his hand.” “...his album is contagiously jubilant and successfully clears the preoccupied mind of its woes and strains.” - Knocks From The Underground

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!
