Description: Acclaimed singer, multi-instrumentalist Tony Jefferson, a New York native, has made his musical impression as a drummer touring the world. He attended the Berklee College of Music on scholarship in 1984 and placed third in the Thelonious Monk International Drum Competition in 1992. His diverse experience as a drummer and his passion for woodwinds led him to explore musical realms that inform his approach to singing. The sky has been the limit for Jefferson, who leads his own quartet on vocals with special guest Jay Hoggard on vibraphone.
