Description: Roger Glenn, master musician, composer and entertainer on the flute, sax and vibraphone, and son of the late Tyree Glenn who was one of the 57 notable jazz musicians pictured in the historic photo “A Great Day in Harlem” is bringing the Roger Glenn Latin Jazz Ensemble to Angelicas in Redwood City, CA on Friday, November 8, 2013. This beautiful newly renovated San Mateo County premier live music spot and restaurant is reminiscent of Roger performing at supper clubs in NYC along with his father.
Roger has performed, toured and recorded to enthusiastic, sold out audiences with jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie (Bahiana), Mongo Santamaria (Mongo ’70), Rosemary Clooney (Sings the Lyrics of Ira Gershwin), Herbie Mann and Pete Escovedo (Solo Two). Roger’s flute playing is featured on the Grammy-award winning album La Onda Va Bien with Cal Tjader and is also featured on many notable recordings by Donald Byrd (Black Byrd), Peaches and Herb (Reunited), ConFunkShun (Chase Me), Bobby Hutcherson (Ambos Mundos) and Mongo Santamaria (Mongo at Montreux).
