ABOUT US “Jazz By Three” features Jeff Andrew Simpson (tied closely with colleagues @ Jazz At Lincoln Center NYC) has a B. M. in Jazz studies on Saxophone from the University of North Florida, and a Masters of Music from the University of South Florida for Jazz Composition. He is a musical director / educator in Atlanta by day and professionally among the most in-demand players in town. His playing is flawless on sax, flute, trumpet, piano and vocal styles of Harry Connick Jr, Bublé and Sinatra. Jeff’s CD of original jazz compositions “In A Midnight Moon” was well received and critically acclaimed. Our TRIO version also features local legend Michael Ewbank on keyboards (Tall Dogs, Butch’s Brew – Butch Trucks of Allman Bros Band – also The League of Decency, Tommy Dean) Michael is a star. His piano playing is brilliant and enchanting. With major recording label creds and formidable talent, his rep follows wherever he performs and is one of the most sought after artists in the city. Billy Bryant’s exceptional brush work on drums, intuitive feel for Latin percussion and New Orleans vocal style pulls it all together for an outstanding TRIO experience. Billy has been a mainstay in the Atlanta music scene for years; playing drums for major music venues, festivals and opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd and Chuck Leavell (Sea Level). He founded “A Sparkling Planet” which was a popular swing / lounge / jazz band in early 2000’s.
