Bio: Born near Woodstock, New York, in 1971, Jeremy Baum began playing the piano at age five, and was playing classical piano recitals by his teens. He grew up listening to his parent’s record collection, enjoying the music of the Beatles and Sly and the Family Stone, as well as the various Jazz Organ and R&B sounds of Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Ray Charles! Jeremy studied Jazz at the State University of New York in New Paltz, and while there joined Murali Coryell’s band (son of jazz-guitarist Larry Coryell.) In 1998 after playing professionally at clubs and opening for many big-name artists, Jeremy earned his Master’s degree in fine arts, and in that period studied with organist Larry Goldings. Jeremy was soon leading his own organ trio and in 2002 released his first self produced album Lost River Jams on Flying Yak Records.
Jeremy’s trio is rooted in the blues and funky soul-jazz sounds of the late 1960s (think Booker T. and the MG’s, The Meters, Jimmy Smith!) His style is also informed by the current masters of the groove from the jam-band scene (Medeski, Martin, and Wood, Soul-Live, Derek Trucks Band.) Jeremy has been playing festivals and jazz clubs in the New England region since the release of his first album. JB’s Band was also featured on Boogaloo to McDuff, a tribute to Jack McDuff, available on Scufflin’ Records.
The Eel - available now on Flying Yak Records!!! Jeremy Baum returns with his second album full of funky new compositions as well as original arrangements of songs by Beck, Prince, James Brown and more!

"Back in the studio for his sophomore release, Jeremy Baum knocks it out of the park with 10 Hammond organ and piano driven arrangements. Backed by a stellar cast of musicians, this album is a great listen from start to finish. Special guests include Jay Collins, Juma Sultan, Chris O'Leary, Eric Kalb, Michael Bram, Chris Reddan, Scott Sharrard, Chris Vitarello, Myles Mancusso, Eddie Torres, Tony Tino, Anthony Candullo, and Dennis Gruenling. Check this one out!" - Dave Gross
"I was immediately grabbed by the guy at the Hammond. (Jeremy's) playing was by turns intense and understated, showing such mastery of the instrument. Brilliant, well-shaped solos, slipping back and forth over that line between inside and outside, never quite treading beyond the style (but hinting at the possibility). It was the subtle, effervescent accompanying that really surprised, the ever-changing tone and texture, slapping rhythm juxtaposed with sustain. This guy knows the Hammond from the inside out, digging out the sounds of the physical tone wheels from the new electronic box." - Steven M. Alper
"Both traditional and trailblazing...Highly recommended." - Blues Review Magazine
