Creole Love Call
Rod Fleeman
Rod Fleeman, one of Kansas City's most noted jazz guitarists, is in constant demand, appearing with many of the best jazz groups in town. His influences cover a wide range of the musical spectrum, which in turn, allow him to fit into many different settings ranging from duos to large jazz ensembles.
Fleeman has been a professional guitarist for over 30 years. He developed a love for jazz while a freshman at Southwest High School in Kansas City, MO. After high school Fleeman attended the University of Utah and studied jazz guitar under Dr. William Fowler. Fleeman returned to Kansas City to work extensively after his freshman year. He played jazz six nights a week at various jazz venues, became the staff guitarist at Starlight Theatre and “learned the ropes” of playing a myriad of musical genres as a freelance musician and member of the Kansas City Musician's Union Local 34-627. Fleeman returned to the academic environment after receiving a scholarship to attend the University of Miami. He was drawn to Miami because of the outstanding jazz program and the recommendation he received from former Miami student, Pat Metheny. Fleeman made the number one jazz band and continued his professional career as a guitarist for various shows on Miami Beach. A move to New York was next, where Fleeman did extensive touring and recording with the jazz fusion group Dry Jack. Since returning to Kansas City in 1981, he has toured and recorded with such artists as Marilyn Maye, Karrin Allyson, Jay McShann, Claude Williams and Interstring. Fleeman has taught jazz guitar at Missouri Western State College and is currently on staff at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
