Milwaukee native Jeff Chambers has made the San Francisco Bay Area his home for some 20 years. He left the the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, where he first began to play acoustic bass, early, for what he calls the “University of [pianist and vibraphonist] Buddy Montgomery”. Since then, he's toured all over the Americas, Europe and the Far East, and played and recorded with a Who's Who of internationally famous musicians from Benny Carter to Don Cherry.



Jeff has taught at various institutions including The Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific, San Francisco State University (San Francisco, CA) and The Jazz School in Berkeley, CA).
