Black musician/writer, Dennis Post began music training at the age of four in Elizabeth, New Jersey in the 1930's. His brother, Percy had a band that performed on the radio station WOR in New York one night a week. It was there Dennis met and heard the great names in music of that time. By the end of high school, Post was versed on the piano, clarinet and the trumpet, but a baseball contract in the then Boston Braves organization was paramount. A knee injury and subsequent enlistment in the Marine Corps resulted. After serving in the Marines as an elctronic technician, Post settled in Los Angeles taking music courses at Los Angeles J.C., studying saxophone with the famed teacher, Merle Johnson while working with his own group in the Los Angeles area. Post continued to write, arrange and play music after moving to San Francisco while working for S.F> Parks, graduating from San Francisco State U. Jobs in music ranged as far north as Vancouver B.C. where he moved and lived running his own restaurant/gallery for six years before divorce dissolved that project and he returned to the U.S. and Seattle in 1981. Never stopping writing and practicing music all that time, he continued to hone his style influenced by Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Charles Mingus, Gil Evans of "Miles AShead" and "Sketches of Spain" arranging and the abstract group writing of Gerry Mulligan. During the rock revolution, Post continued to hone his writing style while drawing from the music at large at the time. With the electronic intervention, the sounds of many instruments became available right in his sutdio as instant arranging was made possible. While bus driving in Seattle, Post has built a studio in his home and with the addition of a sound design course at the University of Washington, the combination of a lifetime of sounds, playing and writing emerge in the nineties that are cutting edge. Summer 1995 has seen Post complete a big and full sound work for runners and aerobics, "Get Movin'" which includes a requested 18 minute non-stop jam that you will find is also for active listening and dancing. Don't miss it. 58 minute tape or CD.
