ABOUT THE ARTIST: Jim Hampton, Bassist

As a youngster, Jim’s first instrument was bass guitar and he excelled while studying with local jazz and pop musicians.    After winning his highschool’s Louis Armstrong Jazz Award, and the bass chair for the South Carolina All-State Jazz Band, Jim was chosen to perform with then-child-saxophone prodigy Chris Potter.   Other notable performances include performances with Winthrop University and the South Carolina Children’s Theater.

A continual student of music, Jim has had individual instruction from world renowned jazz bassist Rufus Reid and Grammy Award winning bassist Lynn Seaton; and he continues his musical journey as a long-time student of grammy-nominated Kevin Bales, one of Atlanta’s top jazz pianists. 

Jim plays in numerous jazz combos and participates in various jazz jams throughout the city.    He has performed with some of the biggest names in Atlanta to include:  Dr. Gordon Vernick, Kevin Bales, Joe Gransden, Louis Heriveaux, Dave Frackenpohl, and many others.   He recently performed with On-Stage Atlanta for their musical comedy “Disaster” and  currently performs with the Alpha Jazz Big Band (the city of Alpharetta’s big band), and Georgia State University’s Jazz program. www.jimhamptonmusic.com
