About Jerry Mack Band

Hi I'm Jerry Mack. I'm a BMI composer/piano/organ player born and raised in NYC. At an early age I studied piano with my father, Richard "Dick" Mack. He taught me scales and arpeggios as well as basic piano pieces. I later studied electric bass with Kermit Driscoll. At 16 years old I began to play organ and piano in and around the NYC tri-state area. Over the years I led all types of bands from Brazilian to Blues. I worked as a piano tuner in the city.

I was fortunate to have worked with people of staggering artistry such as Bob Mintzer and Jerry Leiber, and Iconic sidemen such as Clifford Carter, Charles Blenzig, Santi Debriano, Gary Smulyan and Marc Stewart and countless others.

I saved some of my favorite compositions and posted them here. Some are board mixes of live performances. There are also full-blown studio recording sessions as well as in-the-box computer music.

My early influences include college FM radio stations playing Funk and Latin music from the 1960's and 70s in New York City & 77WABC AM during the top 40's era.

Here in no particular order I list individual artists who influenced my love of music and writing style: Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff; Kerry Minnear; Ray Shulman, Chucho Valdés; Anthonio Carlos Jobim; Don Van Vliet; James Brown, Frank Zappa; Joel Thome; Donald Fagen; Joe Zawinul; Carole King; The Association; Burt Bachrach; Thelonius Monk; Herbie Hancock; Henry Mancini; Leon Russell; Billy Preston; Nelson Riddle; and lots more I will add as they come to mind.
