Hank Mehren Trio
The Hank Mehren Trio play an array of standards, from swing hits to post-bop classics, as well as original compositions. Hank’s sound is a product of his classical background and love for jazz, blues, and the amazing songwriters that paved the way for many of his musical influences, such as Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, and Thelonious Monk. He began his endeavor in jazz at Pasadena City College where he was mentored by local greats, Riner Scivally and David Arnay, before moving on to Cal State Northridge where he studied with Matt Harris, Gary Fukushima, and Tamir Hendelman. Bryan Dedlow is an LA based guitarist who studied with renowned classical and jazz guitarist Ron Berman and subsequently Larry Koonse at Cal Arts. Jesse Ajamian moved to LA from Northern California in 2011. Beginning at PCC, he studied with great jazz musicians such as Ralph Penland and Dave Tull. He later attended CSUN where he was mentored by Gene Coye.
