AWARD WINNING COMPOSER DEAD AT 83

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Clare Fischer, a Grammy-winning composer who wrote scores
for television and movies and worked with legendary musicians like Dizzy Gillespie,
had died. He was 83.

Fischer died Thursday at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank after suffering a heart attack two weeks ago, family spokeswoman Claris Sayadian-Dodge said.

An uncommonly versatile musician, Fischer worked as a composer, arranger, pianist 
and conductor for more than 60 years.

He is best known for his arrangements for Prince, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Branford Marsalis, Raphael Saadiq, Usher and Brandy.

Nominated for a Grammy 11 times in the Best Instrumental Arrangement category, Fischer won in 1986 for his album "Free Fall" and in 1981 for "Salsa Picante plus
2+2."

Born in Durand, Mich., Fischer got his start playing piano and writing jazz-inspired arrangements for the group The Hi-Lo’s, a popular quartet in the 1950s. He worked
as the arranger on Gillespie’s "Jazz Portrait of Duke Ellington”.

Fischer recorded 51 albums over his lifetime with his son Brent Fischer. The music ranges in style from jazz to salsa to symphonies.
