ROGER GLENN

Roger Glenn, master multi-instrumentalist, composer and entertainer on the flute, sax and vibraphone, is the 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.”

Glenn’s earliest memories as a toddler was hammering on the vibes which his father had rolled next to his crib. Following those early years, he has performed, toured and recorded to enthusiastic, sold out audiences with jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Mongo Santamaria, Rosemary Clooney, Herbie Mann, Pete Escovedo and Taj Mahal. Roger’s flute playing is featured on the Grammy Award winning album “La Onda Va Bien” with Cal Tjader, as well as many notable recordings by Donald Byrd, Peaches and Herb, ConFunkShun and Bobby Hutcherson. Living in the SF Bay Area since the mid-1970s, Roger works with many local and touring groups as well as his own ‘Roger Glenn Latin Jazz Ensemble.’ He is currently finalizing studio production on his long-awaited album “My Latin Heart.” RogerGlennJazz.com
