JLE Great Composers Concerts Prepared & Presented by

Jude Hibler & Dale Bruning

"This Concept CD (The Timeless Music of Harold Arlen) does for music what audio books do for literature."
Wayne Thompson, Editor, Jazzscene of Oregon

JLE's Great Composers Concerts Overview

When Dale Bruning and I, Jude Hibler, formed our Jazz Link Enterprises' partnership in 1996, we wanted to present something that would find us working together - imagine - a musician and a media person working together in harmony!

We came up with the idea of presenting concerts based on the music of the Great Songwriters of the world. Dale would use his marvelous skills as an arranger and come up with new charts on some of the great songs they wrote, while I would use my research and writing skills in putting a script together
about the Songwriters and the songs we would present during each concert.

We call these events JLE Great Composer Concerts. During our presentations, I introduce the audience to the featured Songwriter, then Dale and his various ensembles play the first song; I talk again about the next song; Dale plays a song, and so forth.

Since we began this concept in 1996, we have presented concerts based on the music and lyrics of:

Harold Arlen
Irving Berlin
Dale Bruning
Sammy Cahn
Hoagy Carmichael
Tadd Dameron
Howard Dietz
Vernon Duke
Charles Eakin
Duke Ellington
George Gershwin
Ira Gershwin
Benny Golson
Oscar Hammerstein, II
Lorenz Hart
Antonio Carlos Jobim
Jerome Kern
Ted Koehler
Michel Legrand
Johnny Mandel
Johnny Mercer
Ray Noble
Mitchell Parish
Cole Porter
Richard Rodgers
Sonny Rollins
Arthur Schwartz
Jule Styne
Jimmy Van Heusen
Harry Warren

Two of these concerts, The Timeless Music of Harold Arlen and The Timeless Music of Harry Warren, are on the JLE CD label and can be found at the CD page.

We have worked in a variety of venues and for a number of settings. We've worked in Performing Art Centers, Senior Centers, colleges, churches, and country clubs. We've done fund raisers for hospitals & we've even worked in a barn!

Our passion is the music. We have great fun in preparing it and even more fun presenting it.
