Hi, I’m Jack.  Jack Foster.  Jack Foster III.  “Jazzraptor” is my pseudonym of sorts.  When I was first looking for an internet handle, I sat at the computer keying in names that were already taken -- “jack”, “jack3”, “jazz”.  I looked over, deep in thought, and there was my young son Jackson pretending to be a prehistoric velociraptor!  The jazzraptor was born!  The handle kind of sounded like my name (“jazzraptor” . . ”jackfoster”), but was unique and full of imagery and music.  I mostly play rock, but I’ve always loved jazz, too, especially the wonderful chords.

I’ve always been a songwriter.  I met producer Trent Gardner when we both were enlisted to play a one-off show, and we hit it off.  He agreed to listen to some of my original stuff, and the rest is history!  Take some time.  Look, watch, and listen!
