Kevin Dean arrived in Montreal in 1984 and has been large influence on the jazz scene there as an Associate Professor of Music [Jazz Studies] at McGill University, co-founder of the Jazz Association of Montreal and a musician – he’s been making the rounds of all the city’s jazz outlets where his trumpet [and more recently Hammond B3 organ] have given great pleasure to listeners of all ages. Concerts with Jimmy Heath and Benny Golson have been high points of his stay there. He’s also been a faculty member at the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops and has recorded his music on a number of sessions throughout the world. Dean has worked with many excellent musicians since his arrival and introduced people like Mike Murley to Montreal audiences.
