Adam Rogers has forged a reputation as one of the best finest guitarists in the world by way of his starring role with many of the greatest in jazz, pop and world music: Walter Becker (of Steely Dan); Brian Blade; Terence Blanchard; Michael and Randy Brecker; Regina Carter; Ravi Coltrane; Larry Coryell; Elvis Costello; Alana Davis; Gil Evans Orchestra; Giora Feidman; Groove Collective; Norah Jones; David Krakauer; The Mingus Orchestra; John Pattitucci; Simon Shaheen; Jacky Terrasson; Cassandra Wilson; and John Zorn among others.

With the release of his debut CD, Art of the Invisible, on Criss Cross Records in 2001, Rogers emerged as a formidable leader in his own right and revealed his staggering ability as a player, an improvisor and a composer.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
