Block title


While much of my composing and arranging over recent years has used more complex harmonies and multiple themes, hard swinging compositions are still a huge part of my passion and In Pursuit of the 9th Man is an example. The tune is a challenging one and its title alludes to the challenges of keeping a large nine member jazz ensemble together which is often a major logistical challenge. This version features my bass clarinet solo and one of my ensemble members, Joel Holmes, on a piano solo.
