From School to Stage: Oberlin Conservatory Grads Join Big Names at Tri-C JazzFest
In the meantime, Frisson is preparing for its concert in Cleveland, where the band intends to showcase its evolution. When the group first formed, DiBiase spent a lot of time bouncing ideas off other band members and incorporating what he learned into his writing. The goal was to develop a unique sound that enabled each member to play to his strengths.
The increasingly polished finished product that emerged from that process is what Frisson hopes will create the sort of lasting success DiBiase envisions.
“Early on, I got a lot of feedback from people in the band, and I started learning about how to write better for everyone,” DiBiase says. “Once that happened, and I learned how people liked to play dynamically, I started to really get a vision for who should do the solos and when. It’s about having the rest of the players inform your creative process.”
