“I am fortunate to be able to play with many different jazz ensembles at this point in my musical career such as Colossus, the Sam Salamone Trio, Mitch Town Trio, and the the Jazz Faculty Ensemble at the University of Iowa. This quartet was formed last year and has given me the opportunity to focus on the music of more contemporary jazz artists as well as originals. We play music by Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Wayne Shorter, Ornette Coleman, Monk, Coltrane, etc as well several of my tunes,” said Grizmore.

“It is also great fun to play with some of the most talented young musicians in Eastern Iowa, including Steve Shanley on keyboards and piano, Drew Morton on bass and Dave Tiede on drums.”
