Farrell Lowe

Farrell was a farmer until he discovered jazz... then life took a turn.

About Me

I grew up as a farmer in the Ohio River Valley region (aka the middle of nowhere) and began playing the trumpet in the third grade, I began the guitar when I was 15 and have been playing that instrument ever since. My music is most strongly influenced by the work of Ornette Coleman, Ron Miles, Miles Davis, and Karlhienz Stockhausen. I'm a student of all sorts of music...in the world of jazz, I love it from the earliest days to the most recent ideas taking place in the genre, I listen to music, old and new, from all over the globe, and especially enjoy Brazilian and African strains of said idiom.

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.
