The Wisconsin Conservatory of Music is proud to present the Thomas A. Laskin Memorial Masterclass Series, featuring national and local jazz professionals. The first masterclass of the series will be given by Milwaukee native, Carl Allen.

With over 200 recordings to his credit, the gifted New York-based drummer and educator, Carl Allen’s profound percolations provided soulful and syncopated support for nearly three decades. Allen’s multifaceted career is the perfect template for what a modern musician should be. As Sid Gribetz of Jazz Times wrote, “more than just another fine drummer, Carl Allen has it all together as a bandleader, businessman, and producer, becoming a force in today’s jazz world.”

After graduating from William Patterson College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Studies and Performance, Allen went on to play with Jennifer Holliday, J.J. Johnson, Rickie Lee Jones, Sammy Davis, Jr., Branford Marsalis, Lena Horne, Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, and many others. Allen remains active as a sideman for Christian McBride and Inside Straight, as well as Benny Golson, and maintains an exhaustive schedule of recording, touring, and teaching. Education has always been part of Allen’s mission — “Every generation needs someone to help them get to the next level and this what I am hoping to do.”
