Grammy-winning American composer, arranger and pianist Dr. Clare Fischer has secured an honorable place in Jazz, Pop and R&B history. He has worked with Jazz legends such as Donald Byrd and Dizzy Gillespie before becoming the go-to-guy for arranging Pop and R&B albums from the 80s to the present. His influences range from Stravinsky to Ellington to Jobim. Dr. Fischer’s symphonic works like Rhapsody Nova, and The Duke, Swee’pea and Me, are performed by symphony orchestras around the world. A multi-instrumentalist, he has also scored music for TV and motion pictures, and with the help of his son, Brent Fischer (a composer/arranger in his own right), Clare made the leap to popular music, writing charts for Prince, Paul McCartney, Cal Tjader, Poncho Sanchez, Rufus and Chaka Khan, Brandy, Raphael Saadiq, and Carlos Santana.
