Bass – Jazz Camp Week 1, Jazz Camp Package, Giant Steps Package


di Meyerson is an Israeli-raised bassist and composer. She was born in San Francisco to American parents. At the age of 2, she relocated with her family to Jerusalem, Israel, where she grew up and received her first musical training at the prestigious Charles A. Smith Jerusalem High School of the Arts on bass guitar at the age of 14. After graduating from high school, Adi started playing the upright bass in the search of a new sound that was more appropriate for jazz. Three months later, Adi was accepted to the prominent collaborative program between The Center of Jazz Studies (CJS) at the Israel Conservatory of Music and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. There she had the privilege to study and play with some of Israel’s finest musicians such as Amit Golan, Amos Hoffman, Ofer Ganor, Danny Rosenfeld, Erez Bar Noy, Yuval Cohen and many others, as well as the opportunity to work with international jazz legends such as Jimmy Cobb, Mulgrew Miller, Peter Bernstein and Eddie Henderson.

In August 2012, Adi moved to New York to continue her studies at The New School, graduating in 2014. There she studied with some of the great masters of the style such as Reggie Workman, Ron Carter, Charles Tolliver, Kirk Nurock, Billy Harper, Bob Cranshaw and many more.

Since Moving to New York, Adi has already made an impact on the NYC jazz scene and earned her reputation as an up-and-coming young talent. She has played with many local greats such as Joel Frahm, Joe Magnarelli, Steve Nelson, Charli Persip and many others around the NYC area in venues such as Mezzrow, Smalls Jazz, Fat Cat, Smoke Jazz, Minton’s, Zinc Bar, and Dizzy’s Coca Cola. She recently toured the US and recorded with the Champian Fulton band for Positone records.

As an educator, Adi has worked with bandleader and drummer LaFrae Sci at Jazz at Lincoln Center, as part of the Jazz For Young People program. She has also performed in schools around the New York area with The Jazz Drama Program, directed by Eli Yamin, bringing jazz, dance and theater to young people. Adi has also taught at Jazz House Kids as part of their yearly Chica Power residency.

Adi also leads her own band, The Adi Meyerson Band, and performs regularly in NYC. The band recorded its debut album Where We Stand in September 2017, and it will be released on June 5th on all platforms.
