His credits include a “who’s who” of the jazz world – Horace Silver, Joe Henderson, Gerry Mulligan, Slide Hampton, Jimmy Heath, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra and the Michael Camilo Big Band among many others. Mossman and his music will be featured by the Hartford Jazz Orchestra on July 17th, 2023.
Michael Philip Mossman has been active on the international scene since the age of 17, and has recorded with his own groups and with a virtual “who’s who” of the music industry.
