Nathan Holaway Nathan Holaway

I am a 33-year-old jazz musician, who enjoys composing music of any and all kinds...but most particularly jazz music. It really is my life source. I love to play jazz whenever I get the chance, and everything that surrounds it.

I have a B.A in Music from the University of Alabama and an M.M. in Jazz Arranging from the University of Alabama.

I currently have over 200 original compositions to my pen.

I have been a Jazz DJ with a specialty jazz show that lasted for 8 months.

I am a columnist for: ALL ABOUT JAZZ (Building a Jazz Library) (

JAZZ REVIEW (CD Reviews and Jazz Quiz Editor) (



I am also the originator / director / conductor / transcriber / arranger / public relations / webmaster / performer for the two “ZORNOGRAPHY: The Music of John Zorn” projects that were held in Tuscaloosa in November of 2003 and 2004. (

*I am still grateful to the MANY outstanding musicians who worked on those projects with me*

My current projects include: a classic jazz fusion quartet named ELECTRIC MAYHEM a traditional jazz quartet led by drummer TOM RISHER a traditional jazz quartet specifically for restaurants called the NEW AMBIENCE JAZZ QUARTET the delectable, savory sounds of GNAWED-OFF SHOTGUN, and I am also part of the NATHAN HOLAWAY TRIO which performs at many restaurants and features enjoyable standards along with many original compositions of my own.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
