Born July 21, 1939 New Albany, IN. Jamey is best known for publishing an impressive collection of jazz education materials, most notably his "play-a-long" albums, which provide the rhythm section tracks for popular jazz standards, a kind of karaoke for jazz musicians. Aebersold has recorded over ninety play-a-long albums, which offer musicians the chance to practice their improvisation skills in private.

Aebersold graduated from Indiana University with a masters degree in the saxophone in 1959, and received an honorary doctorate in music in 1992. He also plays piano and bass, and teaches jazz improvisation clinics every summer, in addition to the improvisation classes at the University of Louisville.
