Jerry Pollock, drums/percussion, began his career as a professional musician at the age of 14, and has played all styles of music with symphonic orchestras, jazz bands and ensembles, and theater pit bands. Jerry has also been strongly influenced by the Big Band legacy in part due to his four years of experience with the Illinois State University Jazz Ensemble, and is an exceptionally musical drummer, adding invaluable imaginative touches to any music he performs. His deft brush work is reminiscent of Joe Morello and is a frequent feature of Trio arrangements. Jerry often takes a tuneful approach to his improvisation, combining the timbre of the drums with rhythm in such a way as to suggest the melody line. He studied with Chicago drummers Bob Tilles and Marshall Thompson. Jerry is the drummer and serves as the Business Manager for the Leslie Maclean Trio, and holds an MBA from the University of Chicago.
