Jeremy Bacon has always known the one thing he wanted to do—play jazz piano. After attending Oberlin College, where he studied jazz improvisation and composition, Jeremy returned to New York City to become the protégé of the great Don Pullen. Don, a member of Charles Mingus’ last band, was a major influence on the avant-garde scene from the 60’s to the 80’s. At a Public Theater concert showcasing Don on organ, it was Jeremy he trusted on piano. Jeremy was also the regular pianist with the Charles Fambrough Trio. He now resides in Seattle, where he has become one of the first call pianists, playing with his own quartet and collaborating with many of Seattle’s finest musicians.
