Jim Disner

Jim Disner is a guitarist and composer in Denver, Colorado. Mr. Disner has been involved with music his entire life. In his school days he had the good fortune to study jazz and guitar with Ron Miles, Jerry Hahn, Dale Bruning and Fred Hess. His guitar tone is reminiscent of Jim Hall, seasoned with modern effects and techniques that resemble Bill Frisell. His compositional style crosses boundaries of genre. It is ambient and melodic.

Along with solo performances, Jim currently plays with Three Squared, Tonali, the Antwon Owens Group, Joshua Trinidad, Erica Papillon-Posey and is one of the founding members of the now defunct Underdog 5.
