Igor Glenn, an Alabama native, began singing gospel music at a young age. By age five, he knew hundreds of hymns and songs by heart. Always a musician, he tried his luck as an architect at Taliesin West, and law as a student at Arizona State University before claiming a degree in music from ASU. He sang with the New Christy Minstrels as they toured the world and composed and arranged for many well-known artists. In addition to being an entertainer, he also publishes cartoons with a music theme.
Though “retired” he still books himself and his “Jazz Cowboys” anywhere from cruise ships to state fairs. He finds time to host a weekly American Folk Music Gathering at The Beatitudes in Phoenix where he and his wife Barbara live.
