Welcome from Seattle, WA, USA. My name is Troy Kendrick and I am a local jazz bassist and composer. The nature of a bassist is to be the definitive "guy behind the guy", so I am sometimes at a loss as to what to put on my own website, but as I go along, i find that I have lots of music, photos, stories and missives to share with my friends and sometimes passers-by who I hope to befriend at some point.

Why? Because jazz is about communion; with other musicians, with friends and audience and in this day and age, with the world wide web. Jazz at its best is about listening, breathing, interacting. Nothing that can be written on a website can approximate it, but I'll attempt to give you a peek.

Please make yourself at home, look at photos, read about my musical exploits and thoughts on jazz and the world. Listen to the music that I've uploaded, join my mailing list and please come out to a gig or three. I'm experimenting with different iterations of the music player on the site. At the moment, it should display at the bottom of every page. You can play/pause and advance to the next or previous track by using the forward and back buttonsĀ  at the bottom of each page or just let it play.

My projects and partnerships are always changing, evolving and being updated, please check back and subscribe to my blog and gig calendar.
