Eli Newberger

After growing up in New York, Eli went to Yale, where he majored in music theory. Although already an accomplished tuba player, Eli wished to serve people directly, and in his sophomore year started taking premedical courses. Perhaps the prospect of counting rests in an orchestra for much of his professional life helped this decision. But his interests in music were both in performance and in critical analysis, and the latter seemed to fit well with a career in science. His CV, incidentally, includes several publications on the development of jazz piano style. Eli graduated from Yale Medical School in 1966, and spent another year there as a house officer in internal medicine.

His next two years were spent in the Peace Corps, working in rural West Africa

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.
