MICAH JONES is the chair of the Bass and Guitar Departments at The University of the Arts as well as coordinator of the University’s Pre-College Summer Jazz Institute. Originally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Micah came to the Philadelphia area to study violin at Temple University. He decided that jazz was where his heart is and switched his major to acoustic bass. Micah received his Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Performance in 1997 followed by a Master’s degree in Jazz Studies from the University of the Arts in 1999. He has performed in concert and club settings with Terence Blanchard, Randy Brecker, and Patti LaBelle and regularly performs with the Don Glanden Trio. Micah has recorded with Ben Schachter’s Trio of Many, Monkadelphia, and Prism Jazz Trio. Currently, Micah is working on multiple projects with his own trio, Monkadelphia, Freedom Church Philadelphia, and a bass duo recording with RYAN KUHNS, a promising young bass talent from the University of the Arts. Ryan plays regularly with alto saxophonist Ian O’Beirne and singer/songwriter Gillian Grassie. He has also played with Marcus Belgrave, Tom Lawton, John Swana, Matt Davis, and many others.
