Jeff Babko


Jeff Babko is one of the busiest and most sought after keyboard/piano players in the music business today. Although his name might not be a household word, it’s likely you’ve heard his music. Or, better yet, you’ve probably seen him playing in the band on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE, every weeknight on ABC. Apart from his weeknight TV gig, Jeff is also one of the most talented jazz keyboardists on the scene, having toured with George Duke, James Taylor, Julio Iglesias, and has recorded with Larry Carlton, super drummer Simon Phillips, and most recently, Steve Lukather. He has three solo and collaboration albums to his credit and has currently released a new project with his new jazz band, MONDO TRIO, featuring Jeff Coffin and Vinnie Colaiuta, and himself. He’s definitely busy…creating great music. Inside MusiCast welcomes Jeff Babko.

Excellent interview! What a humble human being Jeff Babko seems to be. I think one of the reasons his "name" is not part of the mainstream is because of this high degree of humility. Just a regular guy with monstrous talent as a keyboard player. Keep up the good work insidemusicast!!!

You're probably right. He is a real down-to-earth guy. Extremely humble. Loved talking to him...thanks for your comments, as usual. More to come.

One of the greatest young players out there. I went to school with him at UM and he was burning then as he is now. Creative, fresh, inspiring,
