"Jerry Weldon is one of today's leading proponents of Soul Jazz who represents the 'bar-walkin', hard-blowing, tenor legends in our contemporary American Jazz scene." -Gary Walker, WBGO Radio

Internationally renowned veteran sax man, Jerry Weldon has been a player on the jazz scene for more than 35 years. With eight CDs as a leader and many sideman sides, this native New Yorker’s performance/recording résumé reflects his venerable tenor tenure and reads like a virtual "Who's Who of Jazz." Jerry joined the legendary Lionel Hampton Orchestra in 1981 and in 1990, he joined Harry Connick Jr.'s newly formed big band. Now, Jerry can be seen daily as part of the house band on HARRY, Connick’s new daytime variety show. Jerry can also regularly be found gigging, both as a leader and a sideman, at clubs in the New York area and beyond.

Weldon is a bandleader in his own right, leading ensembles at many of New York's jazz clubs and at jazz festivals around the U.S. He has recorded several albums under his own name, among them, Head To Head, a swinging two-tenor date with Michael Karn on the Criss Cross Jazz label "Midtown Blues," a rousing quintet with longtime collaborator Joe Mags (Magnarelli) recorded live at Fat Tuesdays in NYC, and two hard-swinging dates with the late, great organist, Jerry's long-time pal, Bobby Forrester.
