  Jazzman Jeff Justman is a guitar instrumentalist of Beatle Jazz, 60s Music, and Originals...as well a singer-songwriter and music enthusiast.

    His performances and musical art re-interprets and re-energizes the music of the British Invasion, further expanding the  renaissance of music it produced... while combining the best elements of being a singer-songwriter and arranger.  All mixed with fun!

"Jeff Justman is one of the most exuberant and high-spirited musicians I know," says Austin-based cosmic cowboy and recording artist Bob Livingston (founder of the Lost Gonzo Band, Director of Texas Music International, and long-time member of Jerry Jeff Walker's band).   "He may be classified as a folkie, but he can rock the house with a variety of rhythms and colors borrowed from his extensive musical wanderings.  Jeff sings in an authentic voice and is one of the most prolific writers around, so if you have a chance, be sure to see one of his shows.  It's refreshing to see a musician with so much passion for what he does...it's infectious!"
 
              Jazzman Jeff Justman's music performances are filled with moving re-interpreted melodies and phrasings, partnered with driving  rhythms on the 6 string guitar (or occasional lap steel or 5 string banjo).  All instrumentally voiced with a unique and well-crafted thumb and three finger picking style of notes, octaves, triads, and intervals.
"Jeff...has a true commitment to his art and the history of music," says Sue Demel of the progressive folk group, Sons of the Never Wrong "He delights his audience with a deep sense of the understanding that comes when tradition and talent meet.  He tends to his community by making sure that all kinds of musical genres connect us as neighbors."
    In a musical cultural age of regression where renaissance is the exception rather than the norm, Jazzman Jeff Justman is not an easy artist to categorize and that is part of the joy and fun of his musical performances.
"Jeff Justman is a versatile and talented musician," says regional touring folk performer, Amy Beth (founder of the Woodstock Folk Festival and host of Amy & Friends/The Corner Room.)  "He plays many instruments with infectious energy and a sense of fun.  Jeff's original compositions have a folk, country, classic rock and roots flavor with rhythm always setting the tone.  A performance by Jeff guarantees the audience an upbeat and enjoyable time."
       As Jeff explains, "Folk musicians seem to think my music is country.  Country musicians call it rock.  Rock musicians call it bluegrass.  Bluegrassers call it jazz.  Jazz enthusiasts swear it is primitive acoustic blues and blues fans say it is the real deal folk music.  Realistically, I draw quite heavily on all of those musical heritage genres and intentionally combine and stir up the musical mix to blend it into a dynamic musical canvas of music multi-textures that make it alive with a beat."

    "Somewhere the nickname 'Jazzman' just stuck by the way." Jeff says. "But, in an abstract sense it is a form of pure jazz.  Plus it's a pretty cool alliteration of the J's in my name, and I use quite a lot of alliteration in my song writing besides the obvious musical play on words on my last name of Justman."

   The same music genre defying categories can be said of the essence of Jazzman Jeff Justman's array of departed musical influencing heroes, including:  John Stewart, Waylon Jennings,  Buddy Holly, Chet Atkins, John Lennon, George Harrison, Elvis "the Pelvis" Presley, J.S.. Bach, Charley Patton, Son House, Dave Guard, Chet Baker, Wes Montgomery, Amadeus Mozart, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Roy Orbison, Rick Nelson, Louis Armstrong, or Django Reinhart.  The same can be said of such living influencing musician heroes of Jeff's also which includes Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Bob Livingston, Ravi Shankar, Scotty Moore, David Gray, Paul McCartney, and Lucinda Williams.

"Jeff Justman is a folk performer with a decidedly original style," saysKate Moretti, the Director and Co-founder of The Lake County Folk Festival.  "He is also a great friend to the folk community, lending his seemingly tireless energy to help with folk events in the Lake County area."
  Jazzman Jeff Justman is also very active in Lake County's music community where he stages and hosts a twice monthly Acoustic Music Jam and is a former Board member of The Lake County Folk Club.
"Jeff is a leader in our music community, bringing together musicians from different genres.  He brings together people who share his passion of music." says award winning professional vocalist, recording artist, and Chicago Music Awards nominee for Pop Entertainer of the YearJoan Hammel.
 
 

Biography
 
  Jazzman Jeff Justman was born and raised in Chicagoland and has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old.  His guitar playing started during the very early 60s folk era and then embraced the rock n' roll roots music of the British Invasion and the renaissance of music it produced.  As a musical artist, Jazzman Jeff fuses it all together into his very own brand of acoustic guitar instrumental Beatle Jazz, 60s music, and originals.  When he was eleven years old he developed his own style of thumb and finger-picking with his right hand and has continued to develop it into an unparalled thumb and three finger picking style over the next decades.

     "I literally pulled my guitar teacher aside after class one day at the age of eleven and asked him why I had to learn all of the different strumming and picking styles he was trying to teach me when I already instinctively was playing a style of finger picking I felt comfortable with that I developed outside of the lessons he was giving me," Jeff explains. "He seemed a bit shocked at my comment to him, but was open-minded enough to hear me out. He then, with curious interest, asked me to demonstrate the style I described to him and I recall him staring at my fingers quizzically contemplating the sounds I was producing as an eleven year old.  I'll never forget the approving nod he gave me when he told me he thought I should just keep playing and developing the style of fingerpicking I had demonstrated for him and that from then on he wanted me to only develop that style of picking in our lessons.  What a fine teacher he was to let me develop my own natural instrumentation voicing rather than impose another's on me.  Needless to say, I've been developing that same fingerpicking style for over forty years now and have never stopped pushing the musical envelope with it."

  Jazzman Jeff Justman has performed solo and in collaborations on stage as far away from his home in northern Illinois as Austin, Texas and as near to his home as The Lake County Folk Festival "Music by the Lake" in Lake Zurich, Long Grove's Strawberry Festival, Waukegan's Dandelion Wine Festival, Woodstock's Harvest Festival, Round Lake's American Legion Hall, Trans-Art Café in Mundelein, Amy & Friends/The Corner Room in Woodstock, Woodstock's Stage Left Café, Park City's Greenleaf Grill, and Uncommon Ground in Chicago.

       Jazzman Jeff Justman has served asBob Livingston's band mate guitarist while in Chicago and has played with many fine musicians when he stages and hosts the Acoustic Music Jam in Grayslake.  Additionally, Jeff is a former Board member of The Lake County Folk Club and has co-organized The Lake County Folk Festival "Music by the Lake."
