DNeelBenedetto Artist Doug Neel is an Instructor of Jazz/Contemporary Guitar at Capital University- Conservatory of Music, Mt. Vernon Nazarene University, and the Univ. of Findlay, Ohio. His extraordinary talent makes his recent addition as one of only thirteen featured jazz guitarists by Jazz Columbus well deserved. In the nation’s 15th largest city, to make this short list is worthy of a back pat!

In an interview Jazz Columbus conducted with him a couple of weeks ago, when asked what inspires him about the Columbus jazz scene, Doug stated:

“As I talk to musicians all throughout the city, it really seems as though everyone is always working on something new! Be it a new band/project, some fresh arrangements, original compositions, or forthcoming albums, Columbus really seems to foster a music culture that is not content with “sitting still,” so to speak. There are so many amazing musicians doing beautiful things that one can’t help but get inspired and motivated to create something special.”
