As hard as you may try, you will never find another modern jazz band to play at your next function, who can out perform "THE LEON WESLEY SEXTET."

Leon Wesley, the band's leader, grew up in a household that was alway filled with music. His father was a professional musician who played trumpet and tenor saxophone. Leon's father was his role model, a person who inspired him to study the trumpet while growing up in a musical environment. As a result, Leon met many great jazz musicians, such as Charlie "Yard Bird Parker," Roy Milton, Howard Mcghee, Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon, Wardell Gray, Bill Hadnott, Big Jay McNeeley, Rudy Pitts, Dizzy Gillespie, Geechie Smith, Johnny Otis, Nat King Cole, Teddy Edwards, Illinois Jaquet, and Lionel Hampton.

In later years Wesley met Bobby Bradford, then a music teacher at Pasadena City College. While studying jazz theory, Wesley played in Bradford's jazz improvisation classes, which inspired Leon to move into his present modern jazz direction. "The Leon Wesley Sextet" continues to perform in various venues within Southern California, and at organizational events. Leon also was given the honor of having his photos join the photos of other jazz legends on permanent display inside of the photo galleries in several locations of the legendary "Blue Note Club, " including thos in New York City, Tokyo, Japan Osaka, Japan, and Hawaii.
