Hailed as a musical prodigy, bassist Michael Feinberg has quickly “become one of the premier young artists on the New York scene” (Jazz Inside Magazine). Raised in Atlanta, Ga. Feinberg began his music career on the bandstand at 18 as a member of Grammy nominated trumpeter Russell Gunn’s quartet. At the University of Miami Michael recorded his debut record “Harajuku” which helped him to earn a residency at Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Back in Miami, Feinberg released his sophomore album, 2009’s “Evil Genius.” Following this he was invited to headline at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Following graduation Feinberg pomptly moved to New York.

In 2009 Feinberg began his graduate studies at NYU and quickly found himself working and performing with members of the faculty including John Scofield, Jean Michel Pilc, George Garzone, Kenny Werner and Billy Drummond. Equally inspired by the wealth of talent from his peers around NYC he began working on his next record, “With Many Hands,” released in 2010 to critical acclaim including Bass Player Magazine, who featured Feinberg in its July 2011 issue.

Since then Feinberg has released the “Elvin Jones Project” (2012), “Humblebrag” (2014), and “Whatever Possessed Me” (2018). The success of this recording caught the attention of Steeplechase records which released Feinberg’s next recording, “From Where We Came” (2020) featuring NEA Jazz master Dave Liebman. His latest release, “Blues Variant,” is on Criss Cross.

Michael has received numerous honors and awards.His performing and recording credits are too numerous to detail but include Billy Hart, Dave Liebman, Lee Ritenour, Jeff Coffin, Tim Hagans, Jon Batiste, Peter Bernstein, Mark Whitfield, and many, many more!


On piano is one of Vanderbilt’s newest and most exciting faculty members, Pascal LeBoef. Described as “sleek, new,” “hyper-fluent” and “a composer that rocks” by the New York Times, Pascal is a GRAMMY-nominated composer, jazz pianist, and electronic artist whose works range from modern improvised music to hybridizing notation-based chamber music with production-based technology.

Grammy-winning drummer Terreon Gully is widely recognized for his creativity, versatility and authenticity. Originally from East St. Louis, Illinois, Terreon refined his musical talent in New York City, after completing college in Texas at the University of Houston. An in-demand performer, his innovative and distinct sound has inspired artists such as Dianne Reeves, Christian McBride, and Stefon Harris to make him a member of their bands. His other performing and recording credits are too numerous to list but include such luminaries as Kurt Elling, Nicholas Payton, Kenny Barron, and the list goes on and on. NJW fans will remember Terreon’s riveting performance with the great Bobby Watson in the Jazz Cave in 2021. Currently, Terreon makes Atlanta, Georgia, his home, where he continues to enhance and develop his craft.
