Born on October 19th, 1961 and classically trained at the age of five years old, Glenn started on a musical journey that tothis day is still taking him down many roads. He quickly learned to perform and by first grade he was up in front of hisclassmates singing and playing songs like “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Camp Town Races.” Glenn attributes his talentsto his grandfather Lester J. Lalande who taught Glenn to play at the age of four. Growing up in South Louisiana,he was exposed to many different kinds of music. He played the trumpet throughout his Jr. years and also started a bandin tenth grade with a few friends. By the time he graduated high school in 1979, he started to immerse himself into jazzrecordings from Jean Luc Ponty, Jeff Beck, Larry Carlton, Bill Bruford and others. Not too long after that Glenn went onthe road playing everything from rock & country to cajun and blues music styles with various bands.During the 1980’s and early to mid-nineties Glenn fronted the rock band GANGSTER. Original members included Glenn,Pete Trowbridge, Ed Hale and Brad Bourgeois. This band gained notoriety in the southern region of the U.S. In 1984 theband broke up and Glenn re-formed with new members a year later. Their first CD entitled “Rock and Roll Hit Men” didvery well in the southern regional market. They toured with many nationally known acts such as FOREIGNER, 38 SPECIAL,DAVID LEE ROTH, KANSAS, ZEBRA, BTO, GRAND FUNK RAILROAD, SAIGON KICK, FOGHAT and others. After theuntimely death of one of the members (Pat Bearb) they disbanded. The remaining three members, Jackie Domengeaux, Wydell Chataginer and Glenn recorded a tribute CD to their friend. At that time Glenn was getting into contemporary Christian music. He built a studio combining analog and digital recordinggear and started writing the songs for a new Christian CD. The CD, entitled “Calling All Hearts”, was finally completed atthe end of 1998 and was released on the Divine Recordings label. He also started a concert series for schools called the“Calling All Hearts Youth Concert Series”. The series featured Glenn playing music from his CD and candid conversationabout his experiences and what music has meant to him in his life. That CD was so successful that he recorded another.This project entitled “Your Love Has Lifted Me” was released on December 28, 1999 on the Divine Recordings label.So where does the jazz come in? Well, it just seemed like a natural progression to go back to the music that he studied earlier in his musical career. “Shades of Smooth” was Glenn’s first smooth jazz project and was released in 2002 on theDivine Recordings label. Recorded in his studio, Glenn played all of the instruments except Hammond Organ, played byRobert Burton and Alto Sax, played by John “Bodie” Zerangue. , The CD was well received by local jazz critics and gotsome radio airplay.In December 2006 “Play On Words” was released. Glenn’s second smooth jazz release on the Divine Recordings label,features intricate guitar melodies woven into and around smooth jazz chord structures. He performed and recorded all ofthe tracks on the entire CD. Heavily influenced by recordings from Larry Carlton, Fourplay, and The Rippington’s, Glennhas achieved his own smooth, flowing style of guitar magic. Realizing that speed is great but is just an extra and feeling iseverything, he strives to write melodies that will be remembered for their beauty and content, not complexity. His versatilityon all instruments comes through on the recordings he produces from his studio. In 2008 Glenn released another Jazz album. This time he combined the styles of Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani and Funk to createan eclectic mix of music. Getting away from the Smooth Jazz style of his previous albums, “Fusion III was comprised ofinstrumental improvisation and was a mix of Progressive Rock and Jazz Fusion.
