Playing "Sunny" with Brian Sandstrom on bass and Tim McNamara on flute at Mariano's, 2323 Capital Dr., Northbrook, IL,  March 29, 2019.

Performing my original composition "It's All Good," broadcast on WTTW on January 1, 2016.

Playing "What Is This Thing Called Love?" at the Rose Colella Jam Session at the Jazz Showcase,  August 26th, 2013.

Jazz pianist, composer and teacher Jim Sellers breathes life into any

jazz style with boundless creativity and an adherence to the genre that

evokes legendary players of the past.

Sellers’ gritty and soulful blues, exciting left-hand stride styles and

poignant ballads capture his Chicago roots and never disappoint.

Chicago Jazz Magazine says, "Sellers uses his virtuosity and

eclectic knowledge to excellent effect…novel approaches

and notable musical surprises."  

His wide-ranging experience includes performances with many of today’s jazz luminaries, including trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, saxophonists Frank Catalano and Richie Cole, vocalists Tammy McCann, Hailey Tuck and Spider Saloff, and bassists Nick Schneider

and Bill Yancey.  

He also occasionally plays guitar and sings with
surprising ease and skill, and

audiences love his friendly, funny and engaging banter.
