"The James Zeller trio was the one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The vocals transported our guests to another time. Wholeheartedly recommend."
-Alex Pappas-Rutkay, Wedding, Southhampton, Long Island, NY September 2013
Who is "he"? The real question is, where is he?
No bout a doubt it, James is a chameleon of a musician and artist: virtuosic straight ahead and avante-guarde Jazz/genreless trombonist; award winning crooning wedding singer of Jazz pop songs; singer of protest songs, pianist/guitarist singer-songwriter of songs of all kinds; lover of Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, and Patsy Cline; disciple of Duke Ellington and those who come before him, such as Charles Mingus and Thelonious Monk; Thankful Poet, frustrated poet, Collage artist, maker of single panel comics.
He is the son of Charlotte Louise Tyson Zeller of Eugene, Oregon
He puts his heart and soul into the music he plays.
