Dawn Clement: Tandem

Read "Tandem" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It only takes one listen to Tandem to understand that pianist-vocalist Dawn Clement is a people person with a penchant for trying different things. That openness to various individuals and action points shows itself to be the heart of this collection of duo performances. Despite being a prominent presence on the Seattle scene, working with high profile leaders like soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom, and having a handful of highly praised albums under her own name, Clement ...

Dawn Clement: Here In The Moment

Read "Dawn Clement: Here In The Moment" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Dawn Clement Trio at Kitano

Read "Dawn Clement Trio at Kitano" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

Dawn Clement Trio Jazz at Kitano New York City August 10, 2017 Pianist Dawn Clement is rare for eliciting a classic vibe, yet with such freshness as to never be stale. There's a meatiness to her chord structures and a lithe robustness to her soloing that adds new shades of density to even the most threadbare tunes. For a 10pm set at New York's refined Kitano jazz space, bassist Dean Johnson and drummer Matt ...

Dawn Clement: Hush

Read "Hush" reviewed by Alexander M. Stern

Despite the groans of many contemporary jazz listeners, I happen to believe that we’re living in a particularly exciting period for jazz. There is a truly mind-boggling array of talent out there, both known and unknown, and it’s a great joy to listen to it grow and expand.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
