Doug White

Composer, singer, tenor saxophonist featured throughout Europe and the East Coast with legendary singer, Annie Ross, (of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross fame), Doug White, founder of independent jazz record label, Juniper Records, has enjoyed international acclaim at the helm of his own trios and quartets since the early 1970's. Offering a program that ranges from bop to ballads, catchy original material as well as great standards, blues and modern-style improvising, Doug has entertained at New York City's Supper Club, Jubilee, Bubble Lounge, and Rainbow and Stars, London's Pizza On the Park and Green Room along with private engagements in London, Paris and Provence. He has performed at a number of European festivals as well, including Ireland's Guinness Jazz Festival, where he was the subject of a two-hour documentary on RTE television, and has been the subject of profiles on the BBC World Service. In addition, Doug has performed with Milt Hinton; Tommy Flanagan; Joe Puma; and was mentored early in his career in New York by Warne Marsh and Miles Davis. Founder of independent jazz record label, Juniper Records, Doug White's interest in musical composition was sparked by another mentor of his, film composer, Sam Coslow who was a major force in Paramount Pictures during Hollywood's golden era and whose standards are still well known today. Doug recently scored music for the film, American Seagull. He has received favorable reviews from the international media. Doug also happens to live locally with his wife and son.
