With a legendary career spanning more than four decades, KANSAS has firmly established itself as one of America’s iconic classic rock bands.

2016 marked the release of “The Prelude Implicit,” KANSAS’s fifteenth studio album. The wide-ranging progressive rock album was released on InsideOut Music, and marked the band’s first studio album release in 16 years.
Throughout 2016-2017, the band celebrated both the release of “The Prelude Implicit” and the anniversary of breakout album “Leftoverture” with the highly successful KANSAS: Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour. That tour was released in 2017 as a live album, “Leftoverture Live & Beyond.”

ABOUT JAIMOE'S JASSSZ BAND
For more than four decades countless millions have been wowed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jaimoe’s drumming expertise with the mighty Allman Brothers Band but now, with the release of Renaissance Man, several new dimensions of this iconic musician’s supersized talent emerge for the first time.
Renaissance Man exposes multiple new avenues of expression for the iconic sticksman that tie together his numerous musical interests. Its 10 tracks run the gamut from classic soul and blues to the sizzling Southern Rock that the Allman Brothers Band put on the map to the jazz referred to so cryptically in the band’s name (historians will note that jazz was originally spelled jass in its infancy). Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band consists of —in addition to Jaimoe on drums— the incredible Junior Mack on vocals, guitars and Dobro; David Stoltz on bass; Reggie Pittman on trumpet and flugelhorn; Paul Lieberman playing tenor and alto saxophone and flute; Kris Jensen on tenor, baritone and soprano saxes; and Bruce Katz working the Hammond B3 organ and piano.
