About the Album

The “2022 FELLOWS” (ARC-8715) album presents our four branded ensembles in a diverse program that includes works by YOUTH JAZZ FELLOWS Kenny Watson, Jr. and Henry Fears among the program of original compositions and arrangements of varied Jazz styles and sensibilities studied during the course of this season. The Kansas City Area Youth Jazz program has continued to grow in 2022, premiering both the Smith Ensemble and the Watson Ensemble along with the existing Brady Ensemble and the Crain Ensemble. This album also features music written by composers Pat Metheny, Bobby Watson, WM Thornton, William Crain, and Christopher Burnett. Several 2021 FELLOWS used the knowledge learned to compose their own music and release their own independent projects. See “Luck 20” and “Henry Fears Quartet” at all of the digital music services and retailers worldwide.
