Welcome to the latest episode of Harmonious World, featuring a conversation with composer, arranger and pianist Scott Dunn. Together with vocalist Claire Martin, Scott has released I Watch You Sleep, a tribute to Sir Richard Rodney Bennett.
It was wonderful to chat with Scott about this album and working with Claire Martin and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and commemorating the 10th anniversary of the death ofSir Richard Rodney Bennett. We discuss the arrangements and the recording, as well as how the tracks were selected - some by Bennett himself and some tunes that he particularly enjoyed himself.
Thanks to Scott for allowing me to play extracts from I Watch You Sleep alongside our conversation, especially the incredible reimagining of It's Only A Paper Moon, which is definitely my favourite track.

Don't forget the Quincy Jones quote that sums up why I do this: "Imagine what a harmonious world it would be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing."
