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.

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.
