Lisede ise Trahom isimli bir metal grubuna dahil olarak müzikle arasındaki buzları eritmiş; sonrasında üniversitede müzik çalışmalarına daha sıkı sarılarak devam etmiş. Uygar ODTÜ Oyuncuları’nın bir parçası, 2009 yılından bu yana Oyuncular’ın yaptığı tiyatro oyunlarına özgün müzikler bestelemiş ve mandolinle de bu yıllarda çalışmış. 2010 yılında sekiz kişilik bir kadroyla kurdukları DoğuBatı’ya da mandolin ve gitarla eşlik etmiş

MUSICIAN Born:

Sims Delaney-Potthoff

Sims Delaney-Potthoff, Harmonious Wail's founder, leader and mandolinist , credits Jethro Burns with the band's unique, enticing style of mandolin-driven gypsy-jazz. Sims studied for seven years with Burns, the legendary jazz mandolinist, laying the foundation for Harmonious Wail's acoustic string sound. He furthered his studies with Matt Glaser at Boston's Berklee College of Music, honing his skills while immersing himself in the "gypsy" music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli (Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Bireli Lagrene, Duane Allman, David Grisman, and Louis Armstrong are also on his list of musical heroes)

MUSICIAN Born:

Chris Thile

Thanks for Listening began as a simple idea: To document, in a studio setting, the tunes that singer, songwriter, and mandolinist Chris Thile had composed for the new “Song of the Week” segment of public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion during his inaugural season as host. Thile had set himself a formidable musical challenge and, as befits this enthusiastically risk-embracing artist, he was more than up to the task. In addition to traveling, planning, rehearsing, and performing on the fifteen episodes of APHC’s 2016–17 season, Thile managed each week to create a funny, topical, and at times quite poignant new song he would play with a rotating cast of APHC band-mates and guest stars

MUSICIAN Born:

Liam Fromm

I started with a pencil, drumming everything swing, then I had an urge to play viola which was a classical setting for 10 years. While playing classical I heard all things swingand jazz, Jethro Burns and Tiny Moore playing on Austin City Limits-"how high the moon"-really sent me. So I switched to Mandolin after high school and have been playing melody ever since.

Jamie Masefield

Since 1993, Jamie Masefield's Jazz Mandolin Project has been offering an entirely new concept of what the mandolin can do. Pushing the boundaries with a new innovative sound, "JMP" has toured throughout the US and internationally with a unique approach that has changed the mind of many as to the instruments potential. In its latest ambitious chapter, it's exploring the realm of working in multiple mediums. The name itself, The Jazz Mandolin Project suggests an ongoing experiment, and so it is that Masefield is currently steering his group away from the concert stage and moving it in front of a movie screen to shed light on classic literature and the ethics of Leo Tolstoy, (who has often received the title as the greatest storyteller in modern history)

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.
