It’s more than a jazz concert. It’s time with friends.
This month, The Jazz Directions welcome back guest trumpet player Tom Ziegelhofer.
An educator at heart, this month’s guest musician taught at Hillsborough High School, Webb Middle School, Buchanan Middle School, and Roland Park Middle School. In 1996, Ziegelhofer was hired as the Assistant Principal for Curriculum for the new Performing Arts High School at Howard W. Blake High School and retired in June 2009 after 37 years in education. He is currently the Jazz Outreach Artist and private trumpet instructor for three of the local high schools in the Tampa Bay area.
As a professional trumpet player, “Mr. Z” has performed with Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Nell Carter, Jerry Seinfeld, Bob Hope, and Connie Stevens, just to name a few. He has also opened for Miami Sound Machine and Basia. He was a founding member of Baytown Brass and also performed with The Jazz Cellar Underground Orchestra. He currently performs with Late Night Brass, a high-energy 10 piece group that does covers from Chicago, Tower of Power, Blood Sweat and Tears, Gloria Estefan, Incognito, and many more.
