MUSICIAN Born:

Michael Dease

Trombonist Michael Dease has won high praise for his skills as a player, composer, and producer. Since his arrival in 2001, Dease has already developed a distinctive personal sound that leaves a lasting impression with musicians, critics and jazz fans. Things fell into place quickly for Dease, as he caught the ear of several veteran musicians not long after coming to New York. His first major break came when he was asked to join Illinois Jacquet’s Big Band, with whom he made his debut recording, and he’s never looked back. Since then, the trombonist has performed and toured with the big bands of Roy Hargrove, Jimmy Heath, Christian McBride, and Charles Tolliver. In June 2008, Michael joined the Dizzy Gillespie™All-Star Big Band

Michael Dease: Never More Here

Read "Never More Here" reviewed by David A. Orthmann
