Philip Dizack Philip Dizack

Philip Dizack, born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, started trying to play music at the age of 10. After two failed attempts at the alto saxophone and trombone, Dizack knew the trumpet was for him. Raised by his mother and father, neither of which were musicians; Dizacks teachings were from recordings. Falling in love with Miles Davis' 'Just Squeeze Me', Dizack was introduced to the World of Jazz. Through the next few years, Dizack was inspired by the playing of Miles Davis, Nicholas Payton, Lee Morgan and Louis Armstrong. By the time he hit high school, his path in life was clear. Trumpet.

Philip Dizack graduated from the renowned Milwaukee High School of the Arts in 2003. Later that year, under the direction of Justin DiCioccio he toured as a member of the Stan Getz/ Clifford Brown All Stars performing in the United States, Canada, and Japan. In August of 2003, Dizack began attending the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, pursuing a bachelors degree in jazz trumpet performance. Since then, Dizack has been named third place winner of the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Competition in 2004, first place winner of the National Trumpet Competition in 2005, and most recently, the winner of the highly prestigious 2005 Carmine Caruso International Solo Jazz Competition.

In August of 2005, Philip Dizack recorded and released his debut recording, Beyond a Dream on the Barcelonan based label, Fresh Sound Records

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
