"Jeremy Powell's saxophone playing is compelling..." - Gramophone
"... saxophonist Jeremy Powell spreads a healing balm over the whole piece..." - The Guardian

Hi, my name is Jeremy Powell and I am a Brooklyn based saxophonist and occasional amateur photographer/visual artist. I'd like to thank you for visiting my website with some of my music and photos/artwork.
Here's a little about me and my background:

Over the span of my musical career I've had the pleasure of playing, recording, and teaching in Japan, South America, the Caribbean, and throughout Europe along side such varied artists as Eddie Palmeiri, Kenny Drew Jr., Bill Carrothers, Miguel Zenon, Gabriel Grossi, choral conductor James Jordan, and the Westminster Choir among others.

Before I finished high school I was awarded both the Louis Armstrong and Woody Herman excellence in jazz awards in addition to numerous musical scholarships that enabled me to further my musical studies at the New School University in Manhattan. At the New School I had the great pleasure of studying with such world renowned musicians as Seamus Blake, Chris Cheek, Miguel Zenon, George Garzone, Reggie Workman, Jaime Haadad, and Armen Donelean. During my time at the New School I was awarded the John Coltrane scholarship and was a featured performer in the John Coltrane Jazz Festival.

In 2010 I was named "Best Saxophonist" by Creative Loafing and in 2011 I was awarded the Y2K fellowship which enabled me to complete a Master's Degree in Jazz Composition from the University of South Florida where I was able to study with Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Chuck Owen.

I am presently based out of Brooklyn, NYC where I have been playing and recording with such artists as Eddie Palmieri, Juan Garcia Herreros (the Snow Owl), Cecilia Coleman, Grupo Chonta, Gregorio Uribe, and Pedro Giraudo among others.

I sincerely thank you for your interest in my artistic aspirations. I hope you enjoy what you see and hear and please feel free to send me a message with any questions you might have, or even just to say hello :-)
