John D’earth

John D’earth has toured with Bruce Hornsby, recorded with Miles Davis/Quincy Jones and written music for Dave Matthews, the Kronos String Quartet, and assorted symphony orchestras.  The Thompson D’earth Band has brought its unique sound to venues like the Bakersfield Jazz Festival, Chateau Morrissette Music Festival, Starr Hill Music Hall in Charlottesville, VA, Blues Alley in Washinton D.C. and the Flint Michigan Jazz Festival, among many others.  It doesn’t hurt that Dawn Thompson is a flawless singer with a unique, non-derivative sound who can improvise solos and ensemble parts like a horn or string player; nor that John D’earth is one of the best jazz trumpet players on the scene and a composer of visionary music.  (listed in Jazz- The Rough Guide and Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz, Leonard Feather/Ira Gitler)  Explore this website for info about their new CD, When the Serpent Flies, their live gigs and their musical journey together.
