Harry Skoler
Jazz Clarinetist Harry Skoler and Vibist Ed Saindon team up for TWO ONES, a new recording to be released Fall of 2008

Two Ones will be jazz clarinetist Harry Skoler's fourth recording as a leader. He collaborates with vibist Ed Saindon to compose original jazz compositions featuring intimate musical portraits expressed in duo and quintet settings. The quintet's unique sound highlights the blend of clarinet, flute and vibes/piano. In addition to the quintet tracks, the recording showcases emotionally compelling clarinet and piano duo renditions.

Skoler, noted jazz clarinetist, teaches at internationally renowned Berklee College of Music as an Associate Professor and is an endorsement artist for Vandoren Reeds and Buffet Clarinets. He has charted in the Top Ten for national radio airplay as well as having garnered extensive press coverage. As an educator, the clarinetist has authored articles for publications including Down Beat magazine and Vandoren woodwind method books published by Carl Fischer Inc. While pursuing his Master's Degree at New England Conservatory of Music in the 80's, Skoler mentored with legendary jazz clarinetist Jimmy Giuffre.

In JazzTimes, Dr. Chuck Berg wrote, “Skoler speaks confidently with a poignantly transparent and vibrant sound." Skoler and Saindon have had a long history of collaboration. Michael Bieber, in Jazziz wrote that “the interplay between Skoler and Saindon reveals something more than cerebral and textural...It's heartfelt and enjoyable."

Saindon's previous releases featured Kenny Werner and Dave Liebman. Coming from the “four mallet school," the vibist has developed a pianistic approach to mallet playing. In addition to performing, Saindon's other passion is music education. He is a Professor at Berklee, where he has been teaching since 1976, and is active in the field of music education as a clinician and author.

Two Ones will receive international press, radio and internet promotion.
