Jeron White is a bassist with years of experience on the jazz/avant garde scene in the Washington-Baltimore and New York City area. He leads his own group, Polarity. Polarity opened for Michael Formanek’s Ensemble Kolossus in April 2017 at NYU Theater. Jeron’s discography include Jamal Moore’s “Organix Trio Ancestral Communion” and “Theljon Allen "Prospective.”
"Like any bassist worth his salt, White can provide the bare harmonic outline of a ballad, engage in serious walk-it-home swing, or hold down complex melodies himself, whether in composition or improvisation. (He does tend, though, toward more percussive soloing than melodic—stuff that emphasizes and embellishes the walk rather than putting it aside.) But White is cunning. His thoughtful, groove-intensive lines are speckled with notes that challenge or extend a tune’s established harmonic territory. Not that he takes it outside, mind you; he just finds ways to suggest that what’s “inside” the tune is more expansive than previously imagined. That said White is not at all averse to playing outside, or even totally free." Micheal J. West Washingtonian, Washington Post, Washington City Paper, JazzTimes, and Downbeat.
