About Jay Rowe


Jay Rowe is a pianist and keyboard player from Milford Connecticut.

He attended the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music and is an avid supporter of music in schools.

I’m still a fan of smooth jazz and when I like something, I really like it. I get as excited about new music as when I was 3½. I feel fortunate that I haven’t gotten so jaded. Some musicians get really jaded and they lose that excitement, and I’ve never lost it.
