‘Night of the Improvisor’ hosted by Hanah Jon Taylor presents the special guest, Jeremiah Hunt, bassist from Chicago.
Whether it’s jazz, funk, blues, rock & roll or any other art form that comes his way, Jeremiah Hunt is becoming a highly sought-after bassist. Currently based in Chicago, he has shared in all of the top rooms including the famous Jazz Showcase, The Green Mill, Andy’s Jazz Club -and many of the underground favorites like The Whistler, The California Clipper, etc.
Born in Jacksonville, FL, Jeremiah’s love for music started in grade school playing the trumpet but quickly realized playing the bass was his passion by the 9th grade. Eventually, he went on to study at Florida A&M University (FAMU) and became a proud alumnus of the 2009 Disneyland All-American College Band. As a freelance bassist, he has performed in top performance spaces across the world.
In the realm of Jazz, Hunt has worked & performed with Victor Gonies, Pharez Whitted, Marquis Hill, Bobby Broom, Gordon Goodwin, Dee Alexander & Bob Reynolds – to name few. His versatility allows him to perform with alternative groups such as The Main Squeeze, with whom he’s collaborated in recording the album “Mind your Head” produced by the legendary Randy Jackson (2015).
Lead bassist on “Cosmic Transitions”, a Chicago collaboration with Isaiah Collier (Saxophone) with a five-star rave review in Downbeat Magazine (2021). The subsequent year, Jeremiah also opened for the iconic funk group, The Ohio Players in Skokie, IL.
On his continuous search of sound, Hunt is exploring many avenues while pursuing his own sound. www.jeremiahhunt.com
