Growing up in the Washington, D.C. area, Jeff Cosgrove developed a wide range of musical interests that continue to inform his output. He has worked extensively with blues and rock bands and singer-songwriters, citing B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, The Grateful Dead, Wilco, Andrew Bird, Jimi Hendrix, Tom Waits and Phish as pivotal influences. His role models in jazz are Motian, Elvin Jones, Joe Chambers, Ben Riley and Roy Haynes. He’s also been fortunate to study with Andrew Cyrille, Matt Wilson, Joe Hunt (Bill Evans), Tony Martucci (Mose Allison/James Moody) and Mike Shepherd (Maynard Ferguson/U.S. Navy Commodores/Barney Kessel).
