I am an electric guitarist and composer. I perform and record in the United States and in Europe working with a variety of ensembles of all sizes and shapes. My focus is improvised music and the on going challenge of musical self expression and artistic development.

Jeff Platz / Daniel Carter / Francois Grillot / Frederico Ughi
Boston area guitarist Jeff Platz's quartet album Past & Present Futures is both a clever play on words and a document of exemplary free improvisation. With the support of Francois Grillot on bass, Frederico Ughi on drums, and Daniel Carter on woodwinds and brass, the guitarist nimbly picks his way through the set with a classic jazz guitar tone and an expansive palette of sounds and colors.
