The Mann Sextet is a veteran, top level jazz outfit with a solid front line, and a Grammy winning rhythm section. Music director/arranger is Paul McDonald on keys, Grammy winner and Vibrato legend, Hussain Iiffry on bass, Grammy nominee Sammy K on drums, Duane Benjamin on bone/arrangements, Mike Parlett on tenor sax/reeds, Ed Mann, leader, on trumpet/flugelhorn. The band members are all-stars with credits that range from Aretha Franklin, The Conan O'Brien Show to the Playboy Jazz Festival, to Sergio Mendes. Three of our members run their own bands. The MS has gigged throughout the Los Angeles area, including Catalina Bar and Grill, Typhoon, Jazz at the Rad, Don Rickles 89th and other private events, and in September, we're back at Vibrato Grill and Jazz!
Ed has been featured as a soloist in bands throughout LA, including those led by Danny Pucillo, Juliette Comagere, Psych!, Kenny Shroyer, Craig Kupka, Rex Merriweather, and Larry Robison. He's recorded a number of film soundtracks, jingles and CDs and as a teen he played for Frank Sinatra’s induction as a Scopus Award winner, toured Europe, and along with the late Ricky Lawson on drums, became a member of Cheyanne which was signed by Casablanca Records. As a soloist, he’s a Conn-Selmer/Bach Stradivarius endorsing artist.
AND, watch for the new Mann Sextet CD featuring Patrice Rushen, "Standard Issue," dropping soon!
