Jason Palmer

Jazz trumpeter Jason Palmer is a forward-thinking musician with a bent toward adventurous and cerebral post-bop. A native of High Point, North Carolina, Palmer studied his craft at the New England Conservatory in Boston. While there, Palmer was also a regular at the highly regarded Boston club Wally's Cafe, where he first sat in on jam sessions and later joined the house band. Since graduating from college, Palmer has performed with a variety of name musicians including drummer Roy Haynes; saxophonists Benny Golson, Greg Osby, and Ravi Coltrane; guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel; and many others. In 2007 Down Beat magazine named him one of the Top 25 Trumpeters of the Future. A year later, Palmer released his debut solo album, Songbook, on Ayva Music. In 2009 Palmer won first prize in the Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition. That same year, he starred in the independent musical film Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, in which he played a jazz trumpeter. In 2010 he released his sophomore effort, Nothing to Hide, on SteepleChase Records. A year later, he returned with the album Here Today, featuring saxophonist Mark Turner. In 2012 Palmer delivered his fourth studio album, Take a Little Trip, featuring reworkings of songs by legendary soul singer Minnie Riperton. ~ Matt Collar
