READY SET: Two of America's jazz icons have shared their expertise composing the set musical pieces for the long awaited 2022 Generations in Jazz event.
-
World jazz musicians Bob Mintzer and John Clayton were commissioned by GIJ to compose the original charts for Division 1 and 2 of the City of Mount Gambier National Stage Band Awards which school big bands will perform for adjudication as part of the highly anticipated May 6-8 event.
-
Internationally acclaimed big band leader and saxophonist Bob Mintzer has a long list of career accomplishments.
-
For three decades he has been a member of the Grammy award-winning Yellowjackets and leads his own Grammy award-winning Bob Mintzer Big Band. He has written more than 500 big band arrangements and played on over 1000 recordings which are played all over the world influencing countless composers.
-
“I am honoured to participate in the forthcoming Generations in Jazz project for the 2021-22 season,” Mr Mintzer said.

“While the current situation is prohibitive in terms of me being there in person, the idea was presented for me to write a big band piece for the participating big bands to play and hopefully learn from. Special thanks to GIJ for providing this amazing opportunity to students of jazz music. I hope to someday be able to partake in the event in person.
-
Clayton, a Grammy award winning classical double bassist, arranger and composer, is best recognised from the formidable Clayton Brothers which he formed with his brother, the late Jeff Clayton. He also co-founded the ClaytonHamilton Jazz Orchestra with Jeff Hamilton.
