LehCats (Norbert and Karen Stachels’ last name spelled backwards) blends jazz, funk, R&B, Latin, and other world music styles that takes you on a unique journey using original compositions as the vehicle. This group of seven musicians was formed in August 2013 by Norbert and Daniel Gonzalez and was designed to showcase all original jazz compositions. These musicians tell a unique story with versatility, passion, discovery, and invention.


"Nations and Restorations" is equally thoughtful and incandescent, making you think and stirring and your soul. Maestro Norbert Stachel has given us one for the ages, which speaks not just to today's but tomorrow's generations. He is a creative soul without compare!"
