Feature Friday with Lorca Hart
Are you finding your eyes drooping at the end of a long, challenging week? Don’t worry—you’re not alone. With the schoolyear ending and summer right around the corner, I think that many of us are feeling the heat and are more than ready for Memorial Day weekend!
And what better way to kick things off than with a Feature Friday? Today, we’re getting to know one of the West Coast’s most esteemed jazz drummers—Lorca Hart. Growing up in a musical family in New Mexico, Hart began performing in high school, then attended the California Institute of Arts and is now part of the wonderful Lorca Hart Trio!
Drum roll please …
If you are not playing jazz, what is your favorite music to play?
That’s a tough one—probably R&B.

Firm Roots by Cedar Walton. There’s something so positive and uplifting about this tune—I love the melody and it’s always a fun song to play!
Do you have a favorite place to vacation?
Who is your dream collaboration (living or legend)?
What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
Don’t get so caught up in planning for the future that you can’t enjoy living in the present.
