Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre

Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre is a multiple reed specialist who has appeared throughout the world in festivals and clubs, at colleges and universities, and on television and radio. His musical associations have included performers such as Sam Rivers, Roscoe Mitchell, Howard Johnson, Warren Smith, Muhal Richard Abrams, Jack DeJohnette, Edward Wilkerson, Jr., Anthony Braxton, LeRoy Jenkins, Dave Holland, Kahil El'Zabar and Leo Smith among many others.

At the age of six months, or at least as old as his memory serves, Kalaparush has been listening to music. Actually, it was during this time that his parents took him from their Clarkville, Arkansas home to the southside of Chicago, where they moved into an apartment above Mr. Smith, a music teacher and musical instrument repairman. It was here that young Maurice first heard and later met the likes of Johnny Griffin and Sonny Stitt playing the music that was to become his life.
