Tell me about your work: Tahira Clayton

Tell me about your work is a new interview series published by the Division of Jazz Studies at UNT. We're interested in knowing more about the work life of our alumni, what role their musical education plays in the work they do, and what their musical lives are like now. Knowing this will give current students a broader sense of the career paths they could follow, and could suggest ways to prepare for them while they are still studying at UNT.

Daniel Foose releases new CD

New York-based bassist Daniel Foose, who earned bachelor's (2005) and master's (2007) degrees in jazz studies from UNT, released the CD "of Water and Ghosts" on Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records on Oct. 7, 2016. The CD features Daniel's compositions and collaborators Sebastian Noelle on guitar, Keita Ogawa on percussion, Tomoko Omura and Maria Im on violin, Allyson Clare on viola and Jennifer DeVore on cello.

Daniel and his CD were the subject of this NPR news story on Nov. 26, 2016:

King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand

We note with sadness the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, who, among his many accomplishments, was a composer and jazz player. The One O'Clock Lab Band traveled to Thailand twice. King Bhumibol Adulyadej first met the One O'Clock Lab Band in 1967 at the White House. Neil Slater took the band there in 2004. The trip was documented in the CD/DVD Live from Thailand. Steve Wiest took the band there in 2009 to perform at the World Saxophone Congress with James Carter (photos).
