Jason Parker is a Seattle-based jazz trumpet player, educator and writer. His band, The Jason Parker Quartet, was hailed by Earshot Jazz as “The next generation of Seattle jazz.”
Jason has been involved in the jazz world all his life, after a concert by Dizzy Gillespie at his elementary school prompted him to pick up the trumpet for the first time. He’s been playing jazz and other music ever since, has a long history in radio, and is currently teaching jazz to middle and high school students at University Prep.
