  1. Thanks Jeff for the invite. Much appreciated. Not sure what I did/said to deserve your trust/friendship but it is welcome!

    Not much on your page that says much about you except that you are a pro. I'm a prickly old fart amateur who is lucky enough to play with pros and get out and play a few times a week. Glad I don't have to rely on my "skill" to make a living, but have a hell of a good time playing.

    Wishing you all the best.

About Jeff Hackworth

Basic Information

About Jeff Hackworth
New York City
My Instruments:
SBA tenor
Mark VI tenor
Mark VI alto
Selmer Series III soprano
I have a BA in music from The University of Buffalo (Buffalo NY)
I studied classical sax there with a fine teacher , Ed Yadzinski.
Another excellent private teacher I had on clarinet was John Sedola who himself had studied with Simeon Bellison.
I'm a self-taught jazz and R&B player learning via lots of gigs and listening and transcribing.
I spent 2 years on the road with the Tommy Dorsey Band directed by Buddy Morrow and that was a great education.
I spent time on the road with Matt "Guitar" Murphy of Blues Brothers fame which was also a great education.
I also toured for 2 years with Chubby Checker of "the Twist" fame, also an education of sorts.
