Producer / performing artist DAWSON has released the CD
Depending on the venue size, Dawson's Jazz changes size between an intimate piano/percussion duo and a four-piece knockout. Texas based Dawson performs virtuoso piano and electric guitar. His musical explorations with classical piano, electronic, and jazz create songs that tell stories and celebrate simple pleasures of life. Dawson takes listeners south of the Texas border adding Latin jazz to the musical mix. Critics and audiences agree: Dawson jams with jazz soul.
As the visionary of the performance arts collective Texas World Music Concerts, Dawson's worked with engineer/producers Tye Robison (Eleanor Digs Me, The Nixons) and Chris Bell (U2, Polyphonic Spree). Television, radio, and film producers of the southwest have featured Dawson and he often works with Chicago saxophonist/composer Mitch Paliga and Texas trumpet legend Steve Howard. Others are producer Larry Spencer, composer Kim Corbet, and the saxophonist/composer Lee Schloss.
"Never forget the joy music gives us and recognize that the art of sound unites people of the earth." - DAWSON
