More about the Jerry Weldon Quartet:
Renowned and respected on the global jazz scene as a “musician’s musician”, Jerry Weldon is a first-class showman who has been performing professionally for more than 40 years. He blows his horn with his entire body and delights audiences with his all-in, soulful playing. Jerry joined the Lionel Hampton Orchestra immediately after graduating from Rutgers Jazz Studies Program/Livingston College in 1981. After his stint with Hampton, Jerry went on to perform with a host of jazz giants including George Benson, Jack McDuff, Jimmy Cobb, Jimmy McGriff, George Cables, Cedar Walton, Roy Haynes, Mel Tormé, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Joey DeFrancesco among many others. In 1990 he became a charter member and featured soloist with Harry Connick Jr.’s band and Jerry continues to perform with Connick in concert, on television and on Broadway. Jerry has 11 CD’s as a bandleader and appears as a sideman on hundreds more. In addition to regular appearances at New York jazz clubs, Jerry has played legendary venues and festival stages the world over.
Weldon’s quartet on October 14 will include master Hammond B-3 organist, Kyle Koehler, internationally acclaimed drummer Byron Landham and Jazz Mobile Vocal Competition "People's Choice" winner, Cynthia Soriano.
Jerry serves on the Board of Trustees of the New Brunswick Jazz Project, a local non-profit group that has been presenting world class jazz performances in downtown New Brunswick and other New Jersey locations for the past 11 years.
