After leading his own jazz sextet called “Straight Ahead” with musicians from the Dayton/Cincinnati, OH region in 2003-2005, Jack collaborated with the venerable jazz bassist Eddie Brookshire in 2006 and has been a sideman with the quintet through 2015. Jack has also performed with a variety of regional bands and is currently leading the Project Novo initiative. The Novo Project was highlighted by the 2014 CD recording and release of the avant garde “Nebulosity“.
In May of 2015 Jack recorded and in October of 2015 released his newest CD called “MetamorFiK ProcesS“. It included the finest musicians from the Cleveland, OH area including drummer Carmen Castaldi, vibist Ron Busch, electric bassist Kip Reed, L.A. guitarist Barry Coates, and acoustic bassist from Dayton, OH Eddie Brookshire. This group recorded three of Jack’s originals and one original each from Barry Coates and engineer Tom Baker.
