  4. Attucks Jazz Club : KEN PEPLOWSKI, CLARINET

    September 7, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM @ Attucks Theatre

    “Arguably the greatest living clarinetist” (BBC2), Ken Peplowski is a "brilliantly entertaining" (Downbeat) musician. He cut his teeth playing in the family polka band while still in elementary school in Cleveland; by high school he had caught the jazz bug, and was soon jamming with local musicians and gigging nights and weekends. After a year of college, Peplowski was invited to join the legendary Tommy Dorsey Orchestra under the direction of Buddy Morrow. Just a few years later in 1984, Benny Goodman came out of retirement and put together a new band, hiring Peplowski on tenor saxophone. In his star-studded career, he has collaborated with the greats, from Mel Torme and Peggy Lee to Charlie Byrd and George Shearing, along with fascinating forays into music of all kinds, playing alongside Madonna, Leon Redbone, and Erich Kunzel.
