"Ken Peplowski is arguably the greatest living jazz clarinetist" Russell Davies, BBC2 August 2013
"When you grow up in Cleveland, Ohio, playing in a Polish polka band, you learn to think fast on your feet", says Ken Peplowski, who played his first pro engagement when he was still in elementary school. "From my first time performing in public, I knew I wanted to play music for a living."
Ken Peplowski, clarinet & tenor, moved to New York in 1980 & became an in-demand musician. He was soon playing in all kinds of settings, from Dixieland to avant-garde jazz. "Everything's a learning experience in jazz music, there's always an element of the unpredictable." He was a member of Benny Goodman's last band, has worked & recorded with Hank Jones, George Shearing, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Howard Alden, Charlie Byrd, Milt Hinton, Dick Hyman, Kenny Davern & others.
They will be joined by Chuck Bergeron on string bass & John Yarling on drums
