It’s official, Uptones star trombonist Jeanne Geiger can now add “Professor” to her impressive list of credits. Cal State Hayward recently recruited her to join their storied Music Department as Professor of Jazz Trombone. Jeanne got her Masters Degree in Music Composition as CSEB a few years back, and they must have really missed her because they asked her to come teach.
Jeanne has been playing with the Uptones since 2002, and she is also a member of the Bay Area’s top flight jazz collective, the Jazz Mafia. We congratulate Jeanne “Teeny Tiger” Geiger! To hear some of her playing on The Uptones latest, check out her stellar trombone and horn section work on The Uptones – “TV Guns” – off the “East Bay Orbits” CD.
