The Arrangers Podcast Episode 28: Darcy James Argue Interview @ ISJAC Symposium

Edited by Thomas Lahren (

In May of 2019, Aaron and Drew attended the ISJAC (International Society of Jazz Arrangers and Composers) Symposium in Greeley Colorado. They sat down with world-renowned composer, arranger, bassist, and educator John Clayton to talk music, life, and everything in-between.

Argue made his mark with his critically acclaimed 2009 debut Infernal Machines. 2013 saw the release of Brooklyn Babylon, which, like Infernal Machines before it, earned the group nominations for both GRAMMY and JUNO Awards. His most recent recording, Real Enemies, released in the fall of 2016, earned a third consecutive GRAMMY nomination and has been praised as “wildly discursive, twitchily allusive, a work of furious ambition… deeply in tune with our present moment” by The New York Times’ Nate Chinen.
