While serving as musical director for the legendary late Maynard Ferguson, Helbing earned a reputation as an extremely creative and versatile jazz drummer.
His musical vision shines on his debut album, as he leads a classic quintet through a journey of engaging compositions and improvisations. Lodestar also features brilliant ensemble playing and improvisations by Ken Edwards (trumpet and flugelhorn), Tom Luer (tenor saxophone), Noel Johnston (electric guitar), and Brian Mulholland (electric bass).
Lodestar is made possible through a partnership with NohJoh Music.
