A cultural landmark established by jazz drummer Billy Higgins and poet Kamau Daáood, The Stage has been the heart of L.A.'s jazz scene since 1989 and produced some of the leaders in today's creative music. The Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance Ensemble at UCLA includes: Roni Eytan (harmonica), Aidan Lombard (trumpet), Lenard Simpson (alto saxophone), Chris Lewis (tenor saxophone), Paul Cornish (piano), Emma Dayhuff (bass) and Malachi Whitson (drums).
