Born in 1986 in New York City, Jeff Dingleris a bass player and composer. His bass work has seen him included in a variety of settings covering a wide range of genres of music. From straight ahead jazz with The Nelson Riddle Orchestra, to Macedonian rhythms with Brad Shepik’s Balkan Peppers, all the way to Ethiopian folk styles of The Addis Acoustic Project. Jeff’s recent album “In Transit” has received acclaim worldwide for its blending of straight ahead jazz and Ethiopian folk music. Jeff served for two years as professor of jazz studies at Mekene Yesus University in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and holds a Master of Music degree from NYU.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
