A harmonic dream come true!!!

Ms. Body and Soul

This album is a gift for the ears and the soul... The magnificent compositions by Fernando Gelbard and the incredible harmonies by Clare Fischer left me in a state of bliss! This is the Clare Fischer album I was waiting for, full of beautiful chords and beautiful tunes. It's a must for my music library and I hope it becomes a must for everybody.

"I admired Clare Fischer all my life. His unique harmonic concept has been always like magic to me. In 2010 I decided to produce and album with my compositions and fortunately Clare agreed. His son, Brent Fischer, a first class musician on his own,
helped to make this album become a reality.

I am not going to talk about the music since by listening to Clare’s magic it’s is Impossible to translate it into words. I hope you enjoy the music and share my pride.

About Clare Fischer

Clare Fischer had a varied career as keyboardist, composer, arranger, and bandleader. The composer of two standards, "Pensativa" and "Morning," Fischer long had an interest in Latin rhythms. After graduating from Michigan State University, he moved to Los Angeles in 1957, working as accompanist and arranger for the Hi-Lo's. He wrote for a 1960 Dizzy Gillespie album (A Portrait of Duke Ellington) and recorded bossa nova as early as 1962; that same year he recorded two trio sets and the following year he led his first big band date. Fischer, who alternated between the two formats through the years, recorded in a wide variety of settings from solo piano to heading a vocal-dominated Latin group Salsa Picante. Based in Los Angeles, Fischer (who is also an effective organist and a strong electric keyboardist) recorded extensively through the years for such labels as Pacific Jazz/World Pacific, Revelation, Discovery, MPS, and Concord. In 2003, he produced his first classical CD, After the Rain. Clare Fischer died on January 26, 2012 at a Burbank, California hospital after suffering a heart attack two weeks previously. He was 83 years old. ~ Scott Yanow
