About the event

Barnhart, is an internationally renowned pianist, vocalist, arranger, bandleader, recording artist, ASCAP composer, educator and entertainer. His mastery of the classic swing, jazz and ragtime repertoire of the early to mid-20th century has found Jeff constantly appearing as a soloist, band pianist, and with smaller groups—most notably Ivory&Gold® with his talented wife, flutist/vocalist Anne Barnhart—at parties, festivals, clubs and cruises throughout the world.  His unsurpassed knowledge of the history of America’s early pop styles and its best current practitioners, combined with his superior “people skills”, has awarded him the position of Musical Director for several acclaimed annual events, including the Eagles&Ivories and Templeton Ragtime and Jazz festivals, the Monterey Jazz Bash by the Bay (as co-Director with Brian Holland), Jeff & Joel’s House Party and the Essex Winter Series Jazz Concert.

Jeff specializes in crafting All-Star bands that allow his hand-picked musicians to play with unprecedented heat, cohesion and swing.  He has also played dual piano with such luminaries as Ralph Sutton, Neville Dickie, Louis Mazetier, John Sheridan, Brian Holland and Carl Sonny Leyland. He has recorded over 120 full-length albums on, in addition to his own label, Jazz Alive Records, celebrated labels including Arbors, GHB, Lake Records (UK) and Music Minus One. Reviewer Jack Rummel recently summed up the reason for Jeff’s popularity, averring, “When it comes to talent, speed, versatility, creativity, mastery of multiple genres and just plain entertaining zaniness, Jeff Barnhart stands alone”.
