Madd For Tadd

Active since:

When Kent J. Engelhardt, Ph.D. was rewarded a YSU Research Professorship for the 2016-2017 school year, he had no idea that his project would garner the attention it is now receiving.  Engelhardt’s project, “Tadd Dameron: The Magic Touch” is a recreation of the music on Tadd Dameron’s last album as a leader recorded in 1962.  Engelhardt transcribed and notated ten Dameron compositions including “On A Misty Night,” “Fontainbleau,” “Just Plain Talkin’,” “Our Delight,” “Dial B For Beauty,” “Look, Stop And Listen,” “Bevan’s Birthday,” and “Swift As The Wind,” as well as collabortions with lyricist Bernie Hanighen titled “You’re A Joy” and with lyricist Carl Sigman titled “If You Could See Me Now.”  Tadd Dameron was born on February 21, 1917 in Cleveland, Ohio, and is known as a composer, arranger, bandleader, and pianist.  In addition to composing for his own groups, Dameron wrote for Jimmie Lunceford, Count Basie, Coleman Hawkins, Benny Goodman, Sarah Vaughn, Dizzy Gillespie, and Ted Heath
