Don Mopsick

Jazz bassist based in Southwest Florida.

About Me

A native of New Jersey and educated at Rutgers, Berklee and the Manhattan School of Music, Mopsick joined the Jim Cullum Jazz Band in 1991 and left in 2010. During a thirteen-year free-lance career in Florida, he played concert dates with Al Cohn, Mousey and Tracy Alexander, Don Lamond, Buddy DeFranco, Clark Terry, Warren Vaché Jr., Scott Hamilton, Red Rodney, Flip Phillips, Howard Alden, Dan Barrett, Kenny Davern, and many others.

Don currently lives in Cape Coral, FL.

In Don's bass playing, one hears echoes of bass greats Bill Johnson, Pops Foster, and Milt Hinton. Mopsick presents something endearing to musicians and jazz fans of an earlier era: a completely acoustic approach.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
