Cinematone Cinematone

Cinematone is a collaboration of Hollywood's finest studio musicians under the direction of film composer Leonard Rogowski.

Leonard Rogowski was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. At the age of 7, he was introduced to the world of music with lessons on the saxophone and clarinet. Leonard continued his music development by taking piano lessons and became enthralled with the music masters Beethoven, Bach and Chopin.

By age 17, Leonard had earned a reputation as an accomplished saxophonist and pianist and embarked on a professional career with stage production bands and rock n' roll groups at various venues throughout Southern California including performances at the Hollywood Bowl.

Leonard continued to study music at USC and UCLA and received his B.A. in Music from UCLA. He then furthered his studies with Advanced Courses in Composition, Arranging and Orchestration at the Dick Grove School Of Music. Leonard's extensive music education also includes private studies with Academy Award Winning Songwriter Al Kasha and Music Union Executive Lyle “Spud” Murphy as well as special music composition and film scoring courses in the UCLA Extension Program.

Mr. Rogowski's composing career began as a staff composer for Screenmusic West, a Hollywood based music production company and music licensing organization. At Screenmusic West, Leonard pioneered the “Commercial Broadcast Sound” still heard in today's news programming and corporate television advertising with original music innovations based on the works of Copeland and Stravinsky utilizing polyrhythms mixed with brass fanfares.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
