Originally from Olathe, Charles Glover found music at an early age. In fifth grade he started learning clarinet, and soon after discovered jazz. He picked up the saxophone at 14 and fell in love. While mainly self-taught on saxophone Charles was able to connect with Chicago native Dennis Winslett who elevated his playing in a short period. Since then, he has been in a master class with Bobby Watson at the Kauffman Center and played all around the Midwest in various groups. Charles also spent some time playing on cruise ships as an entertainer. Locally, Charles is involved in such bands as The Diamond Empire Band, and KC FLO.
