Trombonist, composer, and B.A.C. Endorsing Artist Jon Hatamiya is one of the most promising trombonists to come out of the Sacramento area and is rapidly making a name for himself on both the New York and California music scenes. He was recognized in the August 1st, 2011 edition of Jet Magazine as the only trombonist on Wynton Marsalis’s list of “Who’s Got Next”, which highlighted the next generation of emerging jazz artists. Jon also received a 2015 Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award from ASCAP for his merits as a composer and arranger.
Still early in his career, Jon has already performed with a variety of artists reflecting his wide musical interests, including Dianne Reeves, James Moody, Taylor Eigsti, Stefon Harris, Dave Matthews Band, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, among others, and at venues such as Yoshi’s San Francisco and Oakland, the Jazz Standard in New York, the Blue Whale in Los, Angeles, the Monterey and Montreal Jazz Festivals, Rose Hall and Dizzy's Club Coca Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Staples Center.
Jon is also active as an educator, having been on faculty at the Stanford Jazz Workshop as a Mentor Fellow in 2012-2013 as well as guest clinician at the 2014-2016 Sitka Jazz Festivals, and as a composer and bandleader with the New York City based jazz-rock fusion septet XD 7 (with two self-released recordings) and the Jon Hatamiya Big Band, as well as several other small ensembles under his own name. Jon received his Bachelor of Music degree in jazz trombone performance from Manhattan School of Music, where he also was given the John Clark award for excellence in brass performance, and is currently pursuing his Master of Music degree at University of Southern California.
