George Avaloz

Take a trip to the glory days of bebop and instrumental jazz music with powerhouse drummer George Avaloz!

George grew up in St. Paul and was busy on the jazz scene early on, playing regularly with Kiko Rangell, Gary Berg, and Dave Karr by age 15. Avaloz soon moved to Chicago, where he joined Billy Eckstine’s band, a job he would hold for 10 years.

Upon leaving Eckstine’s band, Avaloz moved to New York and played regularly in the lofts and clubs in the area. Now back in the Twin Cities, Avaloz doesn’t play out much anymore, but when he does, you can be sure it’s a special occasion.
