he DekaJaz tentet has burst onto the Los Angeles jazz scene with a sound all its own. DekaJaz is co-led by Los Angeles Jazz Society winner saxophonist SCHEILA GONZALEZ, trumpet artist GLENDA SMITH and drummer/arranger MEGAN FOLEY who came together to form this band in the winter of 1999.

 

 The band is comprised of some of the finest players in the Los Angeles area including SHARON HIRATA on tenor, LEE SECARD on baritone, LES BENEDICT on trombone, trumpeter LEE THORNBURG, STEVE GREGORY on guitar, pianist JOSH NELSON and SHERRY LUCHETTE on the bass. This fabulous melding of talent, raw energy and a vast array of musical experiences gives DekaJaz a sound you wont soon forget.

 

 In addition to the players, the band has called upon the writing and arranging talents of Jack Cooper, Rick Lawn, Dan Higgins, Paul McKee, as well as their own Lee Secard and Megan Foley. Working with such a diverse group of players and composer/arrangers gives the band its vibrant and exciting sound. DekaJaz comes out swinging hard, brimming with energy and doesn't let up until they've played their last note. They posess a fiery intensity tempered with laid-back cool, as well as a deep commitment to keeping the music alive. DekaJaz has received extremely favorable reviews in the LA JAZZ SCENE and is definitely worth checking out! Look for the release of their debut CD in the early part of 2003 and please visit www.dekajaz.com.
