John Henry "Jack" Schroer (January 12, 1944 – June 23, 1995[citation needed]) was an American saxophonist, pianist and arranger best known for his work with Van Morrison in the 1970s as a member of his band The Caledonia Soul Orchestra.[1][2]


Schroer was born in 1944 in Ohio to Henry and Frances Schroer.[3]

Morrison first met Schroer in 1969, whilst he was playing for the Colwell-Winfield Blues Band: "I met Jack Schroer in New York when I heard him play in a blues band and I invited him to play on a gig with me the next night."[4] Schroer played with Morrison in concert until 1973 when he disbanded The Caledonia Soul Orchestra.[5] Schroer played notable saxophone solos on many Morrison songs including "Moondance"[6] and "Tupelo Honey".
