John Oates

John Oates

John Oates, well known as one half of Hall & Oates, the best selling rock duo of all time, has shifted his focus to a burgeoning solo career.

John Raymond Quartet

John Raymond – trumpet Dan Tepfer – piano Joe Martin – bass Jay Sawyer – drums Labeled “a prepossessing young trumpet player…” (New York Times), John Raymond has been making a name for himself as one of the most promising, up-and-coming jazz musicians in New York. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, John began playing piano at age 7 and took up the trumpet at age 10. While still in high school,…


John Scofield

John Scofield is one of the most influential and innovative guitarists of his generation. He has spent the last 40 years blazing a trail through the post-fusion wilderness, bringing his singular voice to a variety of different projects. His hallmark is his masterful improvising, and his music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R&B. Scofield’s resumé reads like a who’s who of the last 40 years of…


John Sebastian

  Over four decades the contributions of John Sebastian have become a permanent part of our American musical fabric. His group The Lovin’ Spoonful played a major role in the mid-’60s rock revolution, incorporating traditional American folk practices into the rock paradigm. John and the Spoonful put their first seven singles into the Top 10, an unprecedented achievement for an American band at the height of Beatlemania. At first they’d taken older…

Johnette Napolitano web

Johnette Napolitano

The rock critic had just vomited all over his bed. It was 3:04 a.m. on yet another early morning in 1986 in New York City and the scribe had just come off a three-day benderpalooza of self-prescribed medicines for the wounds of a break-up with a prevaricating witch. He hated his job, he hated his life – and more importantly – he hated rock ‘n’ roll. As he gathered the…


Johnny A.

For the better part of three decades, this Massachusetts-based guitarist and bandleader has proven himself capable of generating heat at venues from working-class bars to international amphitheaters, and every sort of venue in between. And when the house lights are turned up, he’s just as adept at captivating serious students of the six-string with a virtuosity that earned him the rare honor of having his name placed on a signature…

Johnny Iguana

Chicago and New Orleans piano blues get a shot in the arm and Tin Pan Alley gets the hot-rod treatment, while ’60s pop-soul and French Yé-Yé make ravishing returns on the Claudettes’ second Yellow Dog Records album NO HOTEL. The Claudettes (of Chicago) are Johnny Iguana on piano, Michael Caskey on drums and singer/dancer Yana. This immensely entertaining trio mixes the deep roots of Chicago blues with the spunk of…

Jon Anderson

Jon Anderson

Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes. Anderson was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by Yes, and his role in creating such complex pieces as Close to the Edge, Awaken, and especially The Gates of Delirium was central to the band’s success. Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group’s…


Jon Cleary

In the hallowed ranks of New Orleans “piano professors,” Jon Cleary is on the tenure track. Born in England and bred in New Orleans, Jon Cleary is a triple threat, combining soulful vocals, masterful piano skills, and a knack for composing infectious grooves with melodic hooks and sharp lyrics. He balances a career performing on solo piano, with noted funk band The Absolute Monster Gentlemen, and his power trio Jon…
