All Music Guide - Ken Dryden

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
One of the most overlooked musicians considered to be a part of the so-called cool school is John Graas, who initially played French horn in a classical setting then switched to jazz for good in 1946.

In addition to the leader's compositions, the various small groups delve into standards and works by the bandmembers.
