On April 17th - Brad Leali - current director of the world-famous North Texas One-o'clock jazz band will be working with our jazz students as they prepare for "Essentially Ellington". We are very excited to have him come to Warren Mott and would like to thank Rob Meier from A&G for putting this together.
Below is Mr. Leali's bio:
From 1989-1994, Leali was lead alto saxophonist for the Harry Connick, Jr., Orchestra, serving as its musical director from 1990-1994. In 1995, he joined the Count Basie Orchestra under the leadership of Grover Mitchell. During his years as one of the top jazz musicians in New York City, Leali was a staple in legendary jazz venues like the Village Vanguard, Blue Note, Jazz Standard, Iridium, and Birdland. He has also performed in Lincoln Center in the orchestras of jazz legends Nancy Wilson and Benny Golson. Leali's numerous television appearances include local news programs, the Today show (Peter Cincotti), Jay Leno, Arsenio Hall, BET, and the Harry Connick, Jr., Christmas Special. He performs yearly as part of the Kennedy Center Honors program. Most recently, Leali performed at President Obama's inaugural celebration "We Are One," backing up artists such as Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, and Herbie Hancock. Other artists with whom he has played include Freddie Hubbard, Clark Terry, Joe Williams, Jimmy Cobb, Frank Foster, Jon Hendricks, Roy Hargrove, The Mingus Big Band, Jack McDuff, George Duke, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Jimmy Smith, Robert Downey, Jr., Fantasia, Billy Joel, Kid Rock, Yolanda Adams, and Brian McKnight.
