Geechi Taylor is a top-flight jazz trumpet player, entertainer and educator born in Chicago and raised in the Bay Area. Immersed in music from age 13, he was educated in the area’s fine schools and music camps, receiving his most extensive early training when he was admitted to the University of California Berkeley’s Young Musicians Program. He went on to the New England Conservatory of Music on a full scholarship and returned after earning his degree to the Bay Area’s more temperate climate and rich cultural environment.  Besides gigging assiduously in any number of contexts, he’s very active as an educator, particularly in the Oaktown Jazz Workshop and the UC Berkeley Young Musicians Program from whence he came!
We’re more than pleased to host his return to the Bird & Beckett bandstand!
