In the Begining of Time, there was a Vibration.
Born in Detroit on January 27, 1955, Pheeroan akLaff grew up listening to recordings by such talents as Thelonious Monk, the Clifford Brown / Max Roach quintet, and the Modern Jazz Quartet. He studied
speech and drama at Eastern Michigan University, then spent several months studying and performing with drummers and dancers in Cote D’Ivoire West Africa. Eventually he settled in New York, where his
technical facility was finely tuned and his musical taste quickly won him numerous admirers - particularly among the city’s more adventuresome players and composers.
Audiences around the world have marveled firsthand at Pheeroan’s exciting percussion work, thanks to a number of overseas tours - with his own ensembles and those of his peers. Throughout the Eighties and Nineties, Pheeroan has performed and recorded with many of today’s leading musical lights: Geri Allen, Anthony Braxton, Baikida Carroll, Anthony Davis, Andrew Hill, Oliver Lake, David Murray, Wadada Leo Smith, Cecil Taylor, Henry Threadgill, Mal Waldron, Yosuke Yamashita and a host of others.
Pheeroan has been a headliner at festivals, concerts and clubs throughout North America, as well at such major overseas events as the Sju Festival in the Netherlands, the Willisau Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Moers Festival and the Nurnberg East-West Festival, in Germany, and the Montsalvat Festival in Australia. He has performed in Togo, Cote D’Ivoire, Liberia, Swaziland and Malawi, in 1982 with Oliver Lake’s Jump Up band, and in India, Syria, Jordan, Sudan, Egypt and Morocco in 1985 with Jay Hoggard’s group, both under U.S. Information Agency sponsorship. Pheeroan accompanied the Marie Rose Guiraud Dance Company at performances in four Ivorian cities in 1981, and was a member of the Henry Threadgill ensemble featured at India’s Jazz Yatra festival in 1984.
Since 1989 Pheeroan has performed annually in Japan and in New York with the Yosuke Yamashita
New York Trio, which includes the renowned bassist Cecil McBee. This group, in its twelve years, has featured guest artists of several disciplines. Bhutto dance, visual arts, horticulture, as well as saxophonists Joe Lovano and Ravi Coltrane, have been interactive guests. This group has recorded numerous original works with Mr. Yamashita, who is a national treasure and awarded artist. He is known for a renegade piano style, and humorous novels.Must Hear titles in the akLaff discography include:

Sharing his musical skills and sensitivity with
other players - and with young people - has long
been important to Pheeroan. For example, he
taught a History of Jazz course for Brooklyn’s
Youth Development Council during the Eighties.
He taught master classes at the New School’s
jazz program in 1991-92. Since 1993, he’s been
involved with students of drumming and African-
American music at Wesleyan University in
Middletown, Connecticut, and in the summer of
2001 and 2002 he directed the Park Art program
for Real Art Ways in Hartford, Connecticut.
Pheeroan has been profiled by publications in the United States, Canada, Germany, Finland,
India, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Japan and Australia. He’s also been the subject of feature articles in
Musician, and Modern Drummer and Coda magazines.
