Jim Jacobs Duo/Trio
For a quiet evening of cool jazz and delicious Italian dining, head over to the Deerfield Italian Kitchen, where Bill has been playing piano and keyboard bass every Thursday since 2013 with trumpeter Jim Jacobs. We play from 6-9 pm, and on any night you’ll hear a broad variety of tunes from the jazz canon.
College of Lake County Jazz Ensemble
Bill is grateful for so many educationally rich and musically significant experiences he has enjoyed while playing with the CLC jazz ensembles and combos. From his two years with the band in the 80’s when he was first studying jazz, to playing bass with the CLC combo, to his more recent stint while working to up his playing game, the college band has offered challenging music, the opportunity to play with top notch jazz musicians, and the thrill of performing with guest artists who have achieved the highest level in jazz performance. Watch the calendar for our two concert dates each semester, and come out and hear the band swing.
Your Event Here
We are also available to play for corporate or private events, in your home, or at your venue.
Want just the jazz pianist? Bill plays solo piano, too.
