Top-flight jazz musicians Bob Mover and Joe Cohn offer a clinic open to all instruments and vocalists. Mover first rose to public attention when Charles Mingus hired him at the age of 21, a few years after the alto saxophonist Phil Woods had discovered him. In the 1970s, Mover played tenor sax with Mingus during a five-month engagement at the legendary Five Spot in New York City and later he joined trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker’s band. His records have received positive reviews in Downbeat Magazine, which slotted Mover for a spot in its critics’ poll for “Talent Deserving Wider Recognition.”

Joe Cohn, the song of legendary saxophonist Al Cohn and vocalist Marilyn Moore, emerged from Berklee as a multi-instrumentalist who never fails to impress on the guitar or the trumpet. Cohn has toured with Freddy Cole, Artie Shaw, Zoot Sims, Al Grey, and Wynton Marsalis, just to name a few.

In this clinic, Mover and Cohn will discuss improvisational techniques, how to practice, and developing a repertoire. They will also demonstrate how their personal approaches to time, feel, melody, and harmony can be applied to various songs. Any student who wishes to play should bring their instrument.
