Now's the Time: Rod Fleeman


In many ways Rod Fleeman personifies Kansas City's jazz scene. Although he's a world-class talent, he chooses to maintain a relatively low profile. I believe he continues to tour internationally with Karrin Allyson, but I'm unable to verify that claim. Fleeman's old-school online presence isn't particularly informative. We're certainly lucky to have him. He's seen here with fellow guitarists Dan Bliss, Bill Dye and Tom DeMasters. Fleeman performs at Jardine's on Thursday, November 24, under the auspices of The Beach Nuts.

I will unofficially verify that Rod does still tour with Karrin. Most recently in Western Europe.

Rod will be playing at the Plaza Lighting Ceremony with Dave Stephens.

Otherwise, I usually catch Rod with Doug Talley over in Lenexa at Cafe Augusta.
