Tammy L Hall began playing the piano at age 4 and at age 5 decided to become a good working Musician, traveling the world, sharing Music with all who would listen. Of course now that intention is a bit more refined... and she remains devoted to the piano, Music and it’s calling.
After graduating from the Hockaday School for Girls (Dallas, TX) and attending Mills College (2years), Hall’s career now spans almost four decades, with no end in sight. Tammy continues to expand her musical experience not just through jazz, but through ALL Music. Good Music.
In pursuit of the creation and development and performance of Good Music, Tammy has worked with and accompanied numerous vocalists and instrumentalists, including: Etta Jones, Ernestine Anderson, Melba Moore, Darlene Love, Linda Tillery, Barbara Dane, Kim Nalley, Branice McKenzie, Queen Esther Marrow, Rhonda Benin, Mary Wilson, Denise Perrier, Valerie Troutt, Pamela Rose, saxophonists Houston Person and David “Fathead” Newman, Kristen Strom, violinists
Regina Carter and Mads Tolling, trombonist and educator Angela Wellman, The Montclair Women’s Big Band, and Bassist/Bandleader Marcus Shelby.
In 2015, Tammy made her conducting debut with the national orchestras of Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan, working with Broadway Bound, a diplomatic arts outreach program founded by Amikaeyla Gaston. Tammy works with SFJazz, Handful Players (Children’s Theatre after-school program) as well as teaching and guest lecturing at Stanford University, California Jazz Conservatory, the Oakland Public Conservatory & Black Girls Play, Oakland School of the Arts, Jazz Camp West, Lafayette Summer Music Camps, Marin Country Day School and the California Jazz Conservatory.
In 2018,Tammy received the award for Best Musical Direction for Blues Is A Woman from the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle. Tammy’s Peace-tet also performed at the 2018 Monterey Jazz Festival and she will, with bassist Ruth Davies, make her seventh appearance at MJF. Sold out performances with Laurie Anderson and opening for Joey DeFrancesco at SFJazz, Miner Auditorium, were a great conclusion to a stellar year in 2018.
