Artist Portrait

Jon Mayer

p, *1938
Musician / Composer of Jazz

Born in New York City in 1938, pianist and composer, Jon Mayer began his musical career in the New York jazz scene of the '50s and '60s. In the '60s and '70s, he played in both New York and Europe with the likes of the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, Dionne Warwick, Sarah Vaughan and the Manhattan Transfer, and writing songs recorded by Les McCann, Nancy Wilson and others. Then due to numerous causes, he all but disappeared, entering a 13-year period of inactivity during which he rarely performed. But by 1991, Mayer was ready to return to music and settled in Los Angeles. "Nightscape" released in 2009 is Mayer's eighth album as leader and features the Jon Mayer Trio which includes longtime collaborator/bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Roy McCurdy. In addition to recording, he teaches privately.
