ABOUT

Greetings,
My name is Tyler Leswing, and I'm a Composer, Pianist, and Educator. I'm looking for an upright/double bass player to join a trio alongside me as the pianist and my fellow drummer. I'm looking for someone who is interested in playing/creating contemporary/fusion jazz, in addition to other types of music (the sky is the limit), and collaborating to create cool and tight arrangements. Please read my influences below for a general idea of my musical aesthetic.
