This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



A La Mode is an authentic jazz band built upon Kansas City’s rich
heritage of swing and blues.”Though it’s been years since these giants
ruled the scene (Charlie Parker, Count Basie and Coleman Hawkins), the
Kansas City sound lives on. Kansas City-based jazz and blues group A La
Mode builds upon that heritage and adds their own playful spin that is
classic-meets-contemporary.” –TheRecordKC.com.  “Led
by classically trained guitarist Clayton DeLong and enchanting
songstress Jesica Poell, A La Mode takes the authentic smooth, bluesy
and improvisational Kansas City jazz style and blends it with
Latin-Brazilian, French and gypsy jazz.”,”You’ll think you have been
transported back in time”-  -The Record KC Magazine. Marvin Gruenbaum of
the Kansas City Symphony on jazz fiddle, and world renowned salsa band
leader Miguel “Mambo” DeLeon on congas, completes A La Mode sound
pulling at your heart strings and leaving your skin tingling. A La Mode
has also been known to feature guest artists such as Kansas City jazz
legends Steve Rigazzi on upright bass and Rod Fleeman on guitar. A La
Mode performs all of the old favorite jazz standards along side a few
modern tunes with jazz flavor.
