BIOGRAPHY & CREDITS
A “premier trombonist of the New Orleans style”, Jerry began studying music at the age of 12. While growing up in Connecticut, he performed in a variety of marching bands, drum corps, jazz bands, brass quintets, classical orchestras, and later earned degrees in Performance and Music Education at the University Of Connecticut.

Beginning in the early 1980's, Zigmont "cut his teeth" playing club dates and concerts in regional jazz groups throughout New England. In 1987 he began an association with the celebrated British clarinetist, Sammy Rimington which resulted in a series of recordings and tours. Jerry's rousing style has been featured with many noted New Orleans jazz luminaries including Doc Cheatham, Percy Humphrey and Arvel Shaw .

For over a decade, Jerry Zigmont has been playing and touring with Woody Allen & The Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band. His trombone playing is steeped in the classic New Orleans tradition, with its trademark raw power and "straight form the heart" approach. He is featured on the band soundtrack recording Wild Man Blues and has performed extensively with the group in Europe, South America, Turkey and Greece.

Jerry Zigmont plays a S.E. Shires Company trombone.
