Guitarist Mike Baggetta is one of his generations most original jazz improvisors and composers. He has performed and/or recorded with Tom Harrell, Conrad Herwig, Ralph Bowen, Adam Kolker, George Schuller, Jamie Baum, Jeff Hirshfield, Tony Reedus, Steve LaSpina, Bucky Pizzarelli and Ruth Brown among many others. It has been said that his performances are “totally compelling" (Jazz Journal - UK), “his melodic sense is truly beautiful" (Jazzreview.com) and that “each piece he performs creates new worlds of possibilities" (The Hartford Courant). Mike Baggetta recently received an ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Award for his compositional talent, and the first album of his works for the Mike Baggetta Quartet - “Small Spaces" - has recently been released on the Fresh Sound New Talent label. Mike currently lives in New York City and is an endorsing artist for D'Addario Strings and Evans Custom Amplifiers.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
