A fifth generation American bandsman from Chicago, Jeff grew up with Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Scott Joplin and Spike Jones playing in the background while his father's band, The Original Salty Dogs Jazz Band performed in the foreground. Jeff is the great-nephew of George Hamilton Green of the Green Brothers Novelty Band, a famous ensemble from 1916-1927 which included the big names of the day, like his grandfather, Lewis G. Green Sr. and Jimmy Dorsey. Lewis G. Green Sr. played on the radio broadcasts with Bix Beiderbecke in the Camel Pleasure Hour band, and was also on the same baseball team, Plunkett’s All Stars, in the musicians' league in New York in the 1920s with Bix, the Dorsey Brothers, Red Nichols, Carl Kress and others. Jeff performed regularly with the Ragtime Evolution Jazz Band in New England until relocating to Germany where he is now underway all over Europe as the clarinetist for the renowned Unnerhaus Jazzband. He also appears with his own International Jazz & Ragtime All Stars, Jeff Green’s Chicago Stompers, and his top shelf TransAtlantic Jazz Trio playing Bass, Soprano & C-Melody saxophones, celebrating authentic 1920s style sound, music to the ears of the true connoisseurs of old jazz.
