About


jesse

The MNHBC, lead by professional jazz drummer Jesse Simon has been actively performing composer specific hard bop jazz concerts in the Twin Cities since April of 2016 at The Twin Cities Jazz Festival, The Twin Cities Mobile Jazz Project, and area jazz venues such as Jazz Central Studios, The Black Dog, The Reverie, and Vieux Carre.

The mission of the Minnesota (MN) Hard Bop Collective is to preserve the jazz music of the hard bop eras by performing this rarely heard music live with the energy and sound that the composers intended while engaging audience members in historical anecdotes on the music being performed.
