"Jerry Weldon is one of today's leading proponents of Soul Jazz who represents the 'bar-walkin', hard-blowing, tenor legends in our contemporary American Jazz scene." ~Gary Walker, WBGO Radio

Veteran tenor sax man Jerry Weldon joined the legendary Lionel Hampton Orchestra in 1981 and has worked with dozens of jazz luminaries over the past three plus decades. In 1990, Jerry joined Harry Connick Jr.'s newly formed big band and now, Jerry can be seen daily as part of the “house band” on HARRY, Connick’s new daytime variety show. Jer can also regularly be found gigging, both as a leader and a sideman, at clubs in the New York area...and beyond.  

"A thoughtful soloist whose subtle swing has plenty of fiber." 
~Ira Gitler, The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz.

"...one of the strongest tenormen on the scene today."
~ MVD Entertainment Group

 "When it comes to tenor saxophone sounds, Jerry Weldon has one of the biggest, and warmest, around."
~ The Star Ledger

Jerry Weldon with the Lionel Hampton Big Band Featuring Jason Marsalis

 —  —

Birdland, 315 W. 44th Street, New York, NY

Exciting, hard-swinging authentic jazz—that’s the new Lionel Hampton Big Band featuring Jason Marsalis. These world-class musicians played with Lionel Hampton himself, and Jason Marsalis masterfully fills Hamp's giant steps on the vibes. The Band plays all the Hampton hits, all the great arrangements, and tells some great stories about working with Hamp.

Co-Leaders Lance Bryant, Christian Fabian and Cleave Guyton Jr, who all played with Hampton, relaunched the Band at the request of the Hampton Estate. The Band just released their first CD, “LIVE AT ROSSMOOR”—a terrific combination of hard swinging tunes and funny stories about jazz at its peak.
