LehCats (Norbert and Karen Stachels’ last name spelled backwards) blends jazz, funk, R&B, Latin, and other world music styles that takes you on a unique journey using original compositions as the vehicle. This group of seven musicians was formed in August 2013 by Norbert and Daniel Gonzalez and was designed to showcase all original jazz compositions. These musicians tell a unique story with versatility, passion, discovery, and invention.


”Nations and Restorations” is equally thoughtful and incandescent, making you think and stirring and your soul. Maestro Norbert Stachel has given us one for the ages, which speaks not just to today's but tomorrow's generations. He is a creative soul without compare!”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
