Program Notes

Concerto for Jazz Piano Trio and Wind Ensemble came about because of a conversation I had with a colleague regarding the recordings of Bill Evans with symphony orchestra. It was suggested that I write a piece for wind ensemble and jazz piano along the same lines as these famous eEvans recordings. I was intrigued with the idea, especially since Bill Evans has always been one of my guiding forces when it comes to jazz piano study. Also, jazz has become ever-more present in the concert hall as more and more classical pieces are incorporating elements from the jazz tradition. Whereas I have enjoyed many of these pieces that display a jazz influence, it has seemed to me that they usually focus on styles that were popular in the nineteen forties and fifties. I wanted to write a piece that incorporate more recent jazz styles.

The piece is designed to be played as a concerto, but the individual movements can be played as standalone pieces if so desired.
