Geoff Saunders, bassist

Grammy Award winning bassist Geoffrey Saunders is a versatile performer and composer who is experienced in a wide range of styles and genres. This is what initially drew Geoff to the instrument; the opportunity to connect and collaborate with people all over the world through music and the bass. Originally from Simsbury, CT, Geoff has received degrees from the Eastman School of Music (BM, Jazz Bass Performance) and the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami (MM, Jazz Pedagogy). He received his DMA in Jazz Studies at the Frost School in 2017, where he was a Teaching Assistant and member of the award-winning Concert Jazz Band. While at Frost, Geoff was a fellow at the Henry Mancini Institute where he worked closely and performed with such notable artists as Mark O’Connor, Chick Corea, Bobby McFerrin, Gloria Estefan, Steve Miller, Larry Rosen, Phil Ramone, Dave Grusin, Terence Blanchard, and James Newton Howard. Geoff can be heard on the CD/DVD PBS special Jazz & The Philharmonic featuring many of these artists. He can also be heard on the Grammy nominated recording of All My Tomorrows by arranger Jeremy Fox featuring Kate McGarry on the album With Love.
