Montclair, New Jersey drummer Zach Adleman has performed at Carnegie Hall, the 57th Annual Grammy Awards After Parties, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and NJPAC, alongside jazz luminaries Wynton Marsalis, Rodney Whitaker, and Randy Brecker. Additionally, Zach has received a Grammy Award for playing percussion on the song “Water in Cupped Hands” on Ted Nash’s 2016 release, Presidential Suite.

A recent scholarship recipient at the prestigious Michigan State University jazz studies program, Zach played on Michael Dease‘s 2018 album Reaching Out. In September 2017, Adleman won the J.C Heard National Drum Competition, and led his own trio, featuring Rodney Whitaker, at the 2017 Detroit Jazz Festival. Adleman has performed internationally, including a one-week residency at Marians Jazzroom in Bern, Switzerland, with the Isaiah Thompson Quartet.

Adleman has been extensively involved in outstanding jazz programs like Jazz House Kids and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Orchestra. Today, he strives to embody one of Rodney Whitaker’s sayings, “each one, teach one”, by doing educational outreach. Adleman has served on the faculty at the Jazz Institute at Brevard and works every year at the Jazz House Kids Summer Workshop.
