“With brilliant technique that absolutely burns, Elliott rips scales and patterns with death-defying speeds and almost inhuman cleanliness. So amazing are his abilities at time he sounds like the trumpet equivalent of Al DiMeola with a tone closer to Jeff Beal.”
—International Trumpet Guild, January 2006


Jeff Elliott, an unassuming and often underrated player, embodies the concept of musicianship. This trumpeter has been making waves around Southern California for  decades. Among those who have called on his talents are Jimmy Messina, Flora Purim & Airto Moreira, James Brown, Doc Severinson, and Les McCann.

Jeff Elliott’s new CD entitled “Facing West” will be released in the Spring of 2014. Check it out here.
