Clay - Gott Quintet plays West Coast Cool

All day

Taylor Clay (sax) - Daryl Gott (sax) - Brian Claxton (DRUMS) - Myles Sloniker (bass) - Jack Dunlevie (dRUMS)

Taylor Clay and Daryl Gott present this new project that explores the sonic timbres and compositions of Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh and others who established the “West Coast” jazz sound of the 1950's.

The interwoven sounds of Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh has left a significant and somewhat unexplored landmark in the world of jazz. Their melodic ingenuity and technical virtuosity opened a door to a fresh and modern approach to jazz composition and improvisation. The sources of their inspiration are found blended into their music. While borrowing the form and harmonic structure of an already existing piece of music (usually one from the Great American Song Book collection), Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh would then write their own original melody over that existing structure. These new melodies were heavily inspired by composers from the baroque era, such as Johann Sebastian Bach. The highly ornamented and virtuosic melodies included counterpoint, harmonized themes and demanding rhythms rarely seen in the jazz idiom at the time. This new sound of jazz which was being cultivated in the early 1950’s in Los Angeles and San Fransisco was labeled by theorists and critics as “West Coast Jazz”.

Taylor Clay was born in Brooklyn, NY and began his musical journeys at the age of 13 and went on to study at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY. After completing his degree in Music Performance in 2012, he moved to Colorado to attend the Univeristy of Northern Colorado as a graduate student and teaching assistant. Taylor currently lives in Denver, Colorado works as a busy freelance musician.

Saxophonist and composer Daryl Gott was born and raised in Denver. Growing up in a musical family Daryl was exposed to music and specifically jazz at a young age. He graduated from Denver School of the arts and continued his formal music education at the City College of New York where he studied with saxophonist Jon Gordon. Daryl is established in Denver's jazz scene as an in demand sideman and a dynamic bandleader.
