He is heard on over 30 CD’s. Tom is emeritus Director of Jazz Studies of the award-winning jazz program at Western Michigan University. The TKQ is featuring Cleveland’s internationally heralded percussionist Jamey Haddad,  along with pianist and son Gene Knific, and West Coast Flugelhorn star, Dmitri Matheny.  

Knific has planned some special dedications he has composed to celebrate this homecoming honoring his Cleveland roots. 

A world class musician, native Clevelander Jamey Haddad  spent most of 2012 and 2013 on tour with Paul Simon enhancing his world famous music with his percussion.  Jamey Haddad has been a professional jazz musician for over 25 years. He has toured and recorded with many greats including Carly Simon, Joe Lovano, Paul Winter, Kenny Werner, and Dave Liebman.
