“Jack Mouse flexes his gymnast-level flexibility, nailing spontaneous hemiolas and double-time spurts with taste, confidence and accuracy.”

After decades of performing with some of the greatest names in jazz, drummer Jack Mouse finally gathered together a quintet of some of his longtime Chicago collaborators to put together this intriguing set of ten original compositions. With Art Davis on trumpet, Scott Robinson on woodwinds, guitarist John McLean, and two titan bassists splitting duties, Bob Bowman and Kelly Sill, Mouse’s well-seasoned group aesthetic receives a long overdue recording debut.

Mouse receives award for his work as jazz drummer, educator
Jazz drummer Jack Mouse is the recent recipient of an Aquarian Award of Achievement, presented by  Aquarian DrumHeads in acknowledgement of his contributions as a jazz educator and performer.
Says Roy Burns, CEO of Aquarian:  “Our company has only presented this award three times in our history.  In addition to being a highly regarded educator, Jack’s new recording “Range of Motion” demonstrates his prowess as a marvelous player and a true artist.”
Jack Mouse explains:  “This award has a very special meaning for me.  Roy Burns and I are from the same hometown.  Roy was the first drummer I ever saw play live when I was four years old.  In fact, Roy’s first snare drum was my very first snare drum.  Over the years Roy has been an inspirational role model and a major influence in my life.”
