Brandi Disterheft

Jazz bassist Brandi Disterheft relocated to NYC to begin an apprenticeship under Miles Davis’ bassist Ron Carter. Her fiery bass playing and up tempo, swinging originals and ambient voice energize audiences. Her mother, a Chicago-born jazz Hammond B3 organist who opened for acts such as the Supremes and Carlos Jobim in the 1960s, trained Disterheft’s ears from the tender age of five when she began classical piano studies; yet, her Aunt Angie Jaree, a Grammy Winning session singer in LA (Claire Fischer, Sergio Mendez) encouraged Brandi to sing.

Winning a JUNO (Canadian Grammy) for her debut album, Disterheft was honored to be the bassist for the legendary Hank Jones on the album Pleased to Meet You and has since captivated international audiences at jazz festivals in Japan, Haiti, Canada, Europe, USA and at prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall and the Vienna Opera House. Recordings and performances include collaborations with top drawer musicians such as Anita O’Day, Benny Green, Cyrus Chestnut, Vincent Herring, and Renee Rosnes to name a few.
