Digging Deeper Composition Through Arranging with Dawn Clement Pt. 2
7pm    More Info
A new, free online series from the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts! These themed classes are for both the jazz fan and the jazz musician to expand their understanding (and love!) for the music.
April’s Digging Deeper topic is “Composition Through Arranging” with Dawn Clement.
In this workshop, Dawn will explain how musicians can find their own voice through the process of arranging – using examples of standards from the great American songbook. Join us as Dawn takes attendees through several iterations of arrangements she’s completed and demonstrates examples of how those ideas have manifested in her own compositions. Audience members will be encouraged to participate and give feedback.
This class will run in two parts on April 7th and 21st via Zoom.

Dawn Clement/Stafford Hunter Quartet+ Special Guest (from NYC) Claire Daly (Bari Sax): The Music of Blossom Dearie
Jazz Vocalist and Pianist Blossom Dearie, was born in Upstate New York. In the late 1940s, spent time in vocal groups with bandleaders like Alvino Rey’s Blue Reys, and Woody Herman’s Blue Flames, and also accompanied other singers as well as played in between headlining acts at New York clubs. She was there for the Birth of the Cool, hanging in Gil Evans apartment with Gerry Mulligan, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis. Her first recordings were playing piano on an Annie Ross record. Blossom marked the starting point of her career as 1950 when she sat down and paired piano, with voice, in a little club called the Chantilly in Greenwich Village. Her friend Tony Bennett stopped in often. She later made several records as a leader with Ray Brown, Ed Thigpen, Jo Jones, and Mundell Lowe. Blossom found herself the first woman to own a successful independent record label in the United States.
