Arranging as “Re-Arranging”: Methods for Imagining New Treatments of Familiar Repertoire (2 Hours)

Perhaps Laurence’s best known specialty: innovative writing and arranging for jazz ensemble, with or without vocals, focusing on the ever-expanding American Songbook. Ranging from basic concepts governing reharmonization, phrasing, rhythm and notation to specific devices for reexamining lyrics, understanding grooves, creating vamps, utilizing modulation, writing for horns and strings, this workshop will reveal much about Laurence’s process and include one or two new arrangements -- conceived and executed during the class!
