Bill Moring

A veteran of the New York City jazz scene for over 20 years, bassist Bill Moring has established a reputation as one of the city's most in demand players.

Bill was born in Ft. Wayne, Indiana in 1958. After high school, he attended Indiana State University for a year, also playing in cellist Hank Roberts group. He began gigging around Indianapolis and Cincinnati at the same time coming under the tutelage of local pianists Claude Sifferlen and Steve Allee

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.
