Large Ensemble Arrangements
I have always been interested in the relationship between classical and improvised music. Over the past two decades I have been composing music that blends both genres.
I organized the “Mountain Chamber Jazz Ensemble” in 2015. This 14-piece ensemble featured strings, woodwinds, brass, rhythm section and voice. Several of these arrangements are listed in this section. In the mid 1990’s, as a member of the “BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop” I began writing big band music. I met Jeff Raheb there and we started the “Brooklyn Jazz Composer’s Orchestra”. I wrote the majority of my big band charts during that time period.
The big band charts range from a deep swing groove (The Money Thing, Jazz Tune) to more open musical forms (Renata, Metatron). Miniature is a beautiful jazz waltz, and Dancer is written over a long tonal ostinato. The hybrid charts are more open in nature, utilizing strings and woodwinds as well as voice.
