Philadelphia Heritage Art Ensemble

Active since:

Fred Adams, an inspiring composer and bandleader, formed the Philadelphia based jazz sextet known as the Philadelphia Heritage Art Ensemble (PHAE) in 1993. The PHAE was created as a result of a proposal made by Ron Dewey Wynn to present the compositions of the late Philadelphia jazz composers Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan along with Fred's original compositions at the Mill Creek Cultural Center in Philadelphia. It was there that Fred joined the house band with additional artists and the PHAE was born.

The PHAE is keeping the Philadelphia jazz sound of the '50s and '60s alive representing the Philly East Coast hardbop sound by doing arrangements by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Jymie Merritt, McCoy Tyner, Philly Joe Jones, and Dizzy Gillespie along with original compositions by Fred Adams.

The PHAE lineup includes Fred Adams leading the band on trumpet, one of three innovative jazz musicians rotating in the tenor sax chair, Brent White on trombone, one of two forward thinking Philly based jazz musicians on piano, Sonny Sunkett on bass, and Craig McIver on drums.

The band has performed at a variety of venues including Birdland in New York City, Kelsey’s and the Chicken Bone Beach Festival in Atlantic City, along with several locations in its home base of Philadelphia including Ortlieb’s Jazz Club, the Clef Club, Drummers, and the Platinum Grille
