Jason Palmer is a Boston-based jazz trumpeter originally from High Point, North Carolina. In his teen years, he moved to Boston to attend the New England Conservatory of Music, frequenting Wally’s Jazz Club. There, his love for jazz developed further. Soon, he would bump shoulders and play with countless other well-known performers, including saxophonist Mark Turner, trumpeter Roy Hargrove, and guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. Since his early days at Wally’s, Palmer has earned numerous accolades, received prestigious fellowships, and taught master classes across the globe. He has performed on over forty albums, recorded thirteen albums himself, and toured over thirty countries. At present, he is working on pieces using dialogue from the podcast Last Seen, which explores the 1990 Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist, connecting those themes and ideas with the more contemporary issues involved in compensation for artists in the age of streaming services.
