“The first time I named the group of musicians that were made up of a select group of students from this area was the summer of 1989 for the first jazz festival that was included in the Binghamton Summer Music Festival held at the new Anderson Center on the campus of Binghamton University. The ensemble included Binghamton High School Students; Dena DeRose (piano and voice); Tony Kadleck (trumpet); Steve Davis (trombone); Mat Keeler (drums); together with a professional bassist, Ratzo Harris. The next time I put that ensemble together was in 2010 when I presented them in an informal concert at the Oakdale Mall. The group then included some more the alums of Binghamton and Union-Endicott High Schools and yet another professional bassists. This ensemble included: Dena DeRose (voice and piano); Tony Kadleck (trumpet); Kris Jensen (saxophone); Tom Dempsey (guitar); Sherrie Maricle (drums); together with Jennifer Leitham (bass). At the “Young Lions” performance at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage, the ensemble included another drummer, John Hollenbeck and professional bassist, Tony Marino.” Al Hamme, Binghamton University Professor Emeritus
