Tall Jazz was formed in 1989 by Mike Horsfall (vibraphone, piano), Dan Presley
(string bass) and Kurt Deutscher (drums).
The goal was to establish a unique
sounding jazz trio with an emphasis on arrangements of 'standard' repertoire
as well as original material.
To date, Tall Jazz has performed over 1600
engagements and recorded 6 CDs. The newest CD, 'Ode To A Vibes Generation'
, was released in September 2001 as a tribute to vibists Milt Jackson, Red
Norvo, Cal Tjader and Lionel Hampton.
Tall Jazz has been involved in a wide variety of musical
endeavors , from club dates, concerts and festivals, to workshops, clinics
and school assemblies, as well as private parties and corporate events.
