Bio

Although he currently concentrates his efforts towards jazz guitar, Jerry has an entertainment career spanning nearly thirty years. He has been a Big Band Leader, an orchestra conductor, an orchestral musician, and a jazz and contemporary musician on both Guitar and Bass.

"I wanted to play Jazz Guitar since I first saw Joe Negri on Mr. Rogers over 35 years ago. I wanted to play like Scotty Moore and Chet Atkins because they were always on the stereo at my grandma's house. I love Wes Montgomery and Les Paul."

"I am also influenced by everyone I have played with, including these selected people: Scott Belck, Louie Bellson, Joanne Brackeen, Brothers in Arms, Ray Brown, Royce Campbell, Conte Condoli, Dennis DiBlasio, The Gear Shifts, Tom Harrell, David Hastings, Patrick Hessian, Johnny Holiday, Marian McPartland, Larry (Mack) McWilliams, Ellis Marsalis, Mylla, Frank Puzulo,The Shrine Circus, TC & his Orchestra - Big Band, The Vince Villanova Big Band, The Lawrence Welk Road Band, Roger Williams, and Phil Woods."

"Guitar players should listen to more than just guitar players. Like most jazz artists, I am certainly influenced by the legends in jazz. Some of my favorites are Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson, Lee Morgan, and Paul Desmond."

Jerry has previously toured with the Lawrence Welk Road Band and has played with other major artists including pianist Roger Williams, pianist Joanne Brackeen, saxophonist Phil Woods, and bassist Ray Brown. Jerry began studying jazz guitar with James Tridico when he was 12 years old. He holds a bachelor and masters degree in music. He has regularly performed with many of the premier musicians in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne, Youngstown, Indianapolis, Baltimore and Wheeling.
