Veteran Jazz pianist Dan Haerle may be best known for his contributions to Jazz education, but his resume as a performer is equally impressive. Haerle’s list of credits reads like a who’s who of the Jazz world including stints with Chris Connor, Mel Torme, Al Jarreau, Pat Metheny, Dave Liebman, Woody Shaw, Kai Winding and Freddie Hubbard. Haerle was handpicked to lead the Stan Kenton Orchestra when the renowned bandleader fell ill and was Clark Terry’s choice for his 1975 European tour.
Bassist Bob Bowman began study at North Texas State University and
in 1976 was asked to join the famous Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, touring
and recording several albums, including the Grammy award-winning Live at
Munich. Bob continued his performing and recording career by joining the
Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabakin Big Band in Los Angeles. While based in Los
Angeles, Bob toured with the legendary Carmen McRae and performed with Freddie
Hubbard, Bud Shank among countless others. Bob moved to Kansas City in 1988
where he has been a vibrant part of the jazz scene.
Few words describe the talent of Ryan J. Lee. He’s young, vibrant, positive and one of the most versatile drummers living in Kansas City Missouri today. From jazz to gospel, drums to piano, drum instructor to drum manufacturer, Ryan has made an impact on the music scene locally, nationally and internationally. Only in his early 20’s, he is continuously performing with numerous well-known jazz and gospel artist today
