Alvin Fielder

Mississippi native Alvin Fielder devotes his life to pushing the envelope within the American art form of Jazz music.  His conceptions and contributions within the music have been documented on recordings and powerfully expressed in live performances around the world.  Alvin’s influence has reached deeply into the lives of most everyone who knows him, and with the spirit of tough love as a teacher, his extensive, encyclopedic knowledge of Jazz history (and many other subjects) has encouraged and influenced many musicians – young and old – on their search for their individual artistic voice.
