I’ve just released three brand-new pieces for jazz ensemble.

And the coolest part is that all three of these have been received the Editors’ Choice designation in the JW Pepper catalog.

James Brown goes big band • Grade 4 • Bass Trombone or Bari Sax feat.

Oh yes, it’s raucous.

Up-tempo swinger • In a Japanese Pentatonic mode • Grade 4-5

Alto & Trumpet feature • B.Y.O.G. (Bring Your Own Gong)

Grade 1 • Sneaky, swingy, and bluesy • Don’t wake Mom and Dad!
