Jeff Miguel is a saxophonist that currently teaches and performs in Iowa City, Iowa. All About Jazz describes him as an “expressive” saxophonist, “like a seasoned veteran poised to establish himself as musician of note.”

In May of 2015, Miguel released, as a leader, his “expertly arranged” (Pulse Magazine) and “auspicious debut” (Midwest Record), Perseverance. The album features all original compositions and several talented musicians including Iowa music faculty, grad students, and other local professionals.

Miguel was also recently recorded as a sideman on several albums including Grace Leong’s “Moving Forward”, Dana T’s “Tiny Mind MASSIVE Soul”, Fire Sale’s “Furry Noises”, and several other albums to be released in the next few months.

Miguel has taken an interest in composition and arranging of a variety of jazz styles and “focuses on melody and sophisticated chord progressions to express himself” (Little Village Magazine). He also has a passion for performance that includes a multitude of genres in addition to jazz such as R&B, Reggae, Rock, Hip-Hop, and Funk.

Originally from northern Illinois and having traveled around the world, performing has taken Miguel to many venues. These include: The Iowa City Jazz Festival, Dazzle’s Jazz Club and The Peoples Fair in Denver, The Jazz Showcase in Chicago, Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, The Crypt Jazz Club in Cape Town, South Africa, and The Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington D.C.

Miguel works locally as an educator giving clinics to high school bands and providing private lessons. In the past, he also co-directed the University of Iowa Hawkeye Big Band and taught Introduction to Jazz Improvisation at the University of Iowa.
