Trombonist Doug Beavers is currently running an ArtistShare project for his new album Art Of The Arrangement. The ArtistShare project features exclusive behind the scenes videos, updates, and news directly from Doug as the project progresses. When you donate to the project, you have access to all these features – it’s a great way to stay up to date on the latest from what promises to be an amazing album. Beavers is heading into the studio this week to record charts from a number of important arrangers, including Marty Sheller, Jose Madera, Ray Santos, and more. Art Of The Arrangement promises to be a stunning Latin Jazz release, anchored by music from historically important arrangers, and top notch playing from Beavers and his band.

Here’s a little bit from Doug on the project:
This effort will enlist the talents of living, historical arrangers to handcraft new works for the project, orchestrated for large ensemble. Through the lens of these new works, I will forge a set of my own compositions and arrangements to round out the vision of Art of the Arrangement.
Acknowledging that the musical arrangement itself is a celebrated, unique, and vital art form, Art of the Arrangement will directly involve fans in the creative process of the arranging, from the initial creative spark to the final, recorded version. Participants will be able to interact in person with these celebrated arrangers and me, as the project transitions from initial idea, to production, and ultimately to the completed recording.
