A National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Performance Award recipient, Glover's debut at Carnegie Recital Hall received a standing ovation and accolades from listeners and critics alike. Best known for his jazz clarinet recordings, Glover’s compositions range from small choral pieces to large works for symphony orchestra, and have been performed across the U.S. and in Europe. His recordings have been mentioned alongside those of some of the best of Indiana's other well-known jazz artists, including Wes Montgomery and J.J. Johnson.
Glover writes with carefully orchestrated colors, and cites Bela Bartok and Toru Takemitsu as two of his influences. Well-known in Italy and Japan for his clarinet artistry, he continues to push the boundaries of the clarinet in contemporary settings.
Glover has recorded his latest, 'Abacus, a large work for jazz chamber and quintet. His new group Kilho will be featured playing all original music. The compositions reflect influences from around the world and the result will be ...a completely uncategorical recording. Mr. Glover lives in Indianapolis where he teaches and writes.
