Four-time Grammy winner, Lenny White, co-created some of the most influential music over the past four decades and collaborated with some of jazz music’s greatest artists including Miles Davis, Freddie Hubband, Ron Carter and Joe Henderson. Along with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Al Di Meola, he helped define Jazz-Fusion with the Grammy Award winning group ‘Return to Forever.”

Alternating between drummer and producer, Lenny is always on the cutting edge. His producing talents have been sampled by Nancy Wilson, Chaka Khan, Diane Reeves, Rachelle Ferelle and Marlena Shaw to name but a few - as well as ‘Pieces of a Dream’ with Grover Washington, Gato Barbieri, Wayne Shorter, Wallace Roney and hip-hop artist Big Daddy Kane.

With fellow “Jamaica Boy’ band member and great producer Marcus Miller, Lenny co-scored the music for Reginald Hudlin’s critically and financially successful film. “House Party.” And Lenny had a hand in the soundtrack for Spike Lee’s film ‘School Daze.”

Currently touring with several different bands, Lenny continues to push the envelope with
Patrice Rushen, Victor Bailey, Foley and Bennie Maupin while promoting their recent release on BFM jazz ‘Lenny White Live’ recorded in 1997 with Donald Blackman and Mark Ledford.

Another current touring project includes the acclaimed Neapolitan chanteuse Letizia Gambi with cello, bandoleon, bass, piano, sax and of course Lenny on drums. Her freshman release ‘Introducing Letizia Gambi’ was produced by Lenny and features Ron Carter, Chick Corea, Wallace Roney, Gato Barbieri, Gil Goldstein, Patrice Rushen and Lenny.
