David Bloom (Composer) and Cliff Colnot (Arranger) have released three albums on Fire & Form Records: Contender (2017), Until We Meet Again (2007), and Duende (2004).
“The ten compositions, paired with Cliff’s deep understanding of instrumentation, provide an impressive variety of moods, grooves, colors and directions to explore and enjoy.Don Sickler, Musician (trumpet), Grammy-Winning Producer, Arranger,Educator
“This recording is a great example of synchronicity between composer and arranger….you know there were a lot of smiles in the studio during the sessions!!Dave Liebman, NEA Jazz Master
I have particularly enjoyed writing this music, giving Cliff a few ideas about instrumentation, and then coming to the studio and hearing his glorious rendering of my compositions. It’s always an exhilarating surprise to hear how a lead sheet can turn into a magical experience. Now that’s true alchemy.”David Bloom
