It is truly rare to find the kind of dedication and emotional investment in music that Geoff Alpert displays with every note he plays. After a 30 year hiatus from music when Geoff dedicated himself as a husband and a father, he has returned to the scene and brought with him a groovy smooth jazz based sound that features the trombone and that is making a huge impact on the smooth jazz scene. Although Geoff’s music contains some very smooth jazz-oriented grooves, he pushes himself to incorporate other genres such as R&B, which results in a beautiful fusion of genres.
Geoff lost his wife to cancer in 2002 and, after soul searching, was motivated to re-join the musical community. He took the emotion and passion from this loss and, after meeting director Gail Johnson and bassist Darryl Williams, was lead to create a musical statement and image that closely ties to his life story. Geoff’s passion for the spiritual Eastern Martial Arts discipline is also an integral part of his music and inspiration.
