Please check out these live concert recordings from some of our touring and local musicians. They represent the artistic quality we present with our  Jazz Performance Series. The music below has been recorded and mixed by Sound Engineer, Jeff Miller.

 

We want to recognize Jeff Miller, who has been volunteering his time and equipment to create professional, high quality recordings of our concerts. We are so thankful and thrilled that he has taken on this endeavor. We plan to use these recordings for radio programming on WETF and WVPE, and other future projects. Some of the musicians have already completed CD release projects from these recordings at Merrimans’ Playhouse! Jeff is also the guitarist for Merrimans’ Play-House Players. He does this volunteer work as a side passion to his career as an Associate Professor in the Accountancy Department at Notre Dame.
