A bittersweet and delicate telling accompanied by empathetic playing.
On Tandem, pianist Dawn Clement explores the magic of musical pairs with some of her closest musical colleagues from the past 20 years. In duets with the legendary trombonist Julian Priester, drummer Matt Wilson, vocalist Johnaye Kendrick and others, Clement enjoys intimate conversations through jazz compositions by Monk & Tristano, her own originals, and classics such as "My Ideal," "In the Wee Small Hours," and "I Think of You." The result is a collection so fresh and raw it’s as if the listener has eaves-dropped on these musician’s most guarded secrets. It’s Clement's unique ability to tap into that vulnerability that makes her music so relevant and resonant.
