School Of Jazz: The Ryan Leppich Quintet - A Final High School Swing
Drummer Ryan Leppich has graduated Mountlake Terrace HS and is preparing to go off to college. However, while at MTHS, he formed a jazz quintet consisting of some of his school band mates as well as fine players from other high school jazz programs in the area.
3 of the 5 are graduating, so we were fortunate to get them into the KPLU performance studio before they went their separate ways. In this session they take on some pretty complex jazz compositions and they do with an ease that belies their years. Dig in.
