Dawn Clement (piano, vocals) and Naomi Moon Siegel (trombone) come together for the first time ever as a duo in what promises to be a night of exciting, intimate, creative music.

Dawn Clement is a joyful and formidable force in modern creative music. “In all this world of jazz, there are very few individual voices, but Dawn has come up with a voice that’s unique…” says legendary jazz trombonist Julian Priester. Her albums showcase an impressive range from master of the jazz piano trio style, to avant garde improviser, to an expressive songwriter and vocalist. Clement has collaborated with artists including Jane Ira Bloom, Ron Miles, Matt Wilson, Rene Marie, and GRAMMY-winning ensemble säje. She is also a member of Esthesis Quartet, which includes flutist Elsa Nilsson, drummer Tina Raymond, and bassist Emma Dayhuff.

Award-winning trombonist and composer Naomi Moon Siegel is changing the way the trombone is seen in music. She has “crafted a truly unique aesthetic, combining elements of straightahead, fusion and modern jazz with world-music flavors in a way that sounds entirely of the 21st century” (JAZZIZ).  A graduate of Oberlin Conservatory, Siegel has received the Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Hero Award, Montana Art Council’s Artist Innovation Award, Chamber Music America’s Performance Plus Grant, and an Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for Emerging Artist of the Year.
