Celebrating 50+ years of Live MUSIC + Recordings - 58 albums Grammy®-winning producer, composer, arranger Brent Fischer credits his late father, Dr Clare Fischer, for creating a family tradition of writing with a rich harmonic and orchestrational palette that has become the Fischer brand. A multi-instrumentalist (vibes, keys, bass, drums), Brent Fischer moves easily between genres. His arranging credits for pop and jazz royalty include: D’Angelo, Prince, Michael Jackson, Usher, Al Jarreau, Elvis Costello and The Roots. Brent Fischer directs all the Clare Fischer ensembles and produced the last eight Clare Fischer albums, including: The new Clare Fischer Latin Jazz Big Band release ‘¡Intenso!’ features Sheila E. and Roberta Gambarini.
In Brent Fischer's capable hands, it seems the music of Clare Fischer will live on for years to come, in a big band paradigm or some other framework. And that's a good thing for musicians and listeners alike. Pacific Jazz exudes a charm that ensnares both heart and mind.
