Jake Sherman began taking piano lessons at age 5 and fell in love with ragtime, learning many Scott Joplin classics and composing rags. At age 12 he started studying jazz piano and was soon playing in ensembles, and at 14 he discovered the Hammond organ.
Sherman has appeared with Ralph Peterson, Gretchen Parlato, and Lalah Hathaway, among others. In addition to jazz, he has become passionate about other music styles, and plays gospel organ every Sunday at Eliot Church in Roxbury. His first solo album, available through his website, was just released.
