About the Album

Sleepy Creek Samba (named for Sleepy Creek Mountain in Morgan County, West Virginia) is an example of my writing for mid-size jazz ensemble. The score is written for soloist, 5 horns, and rhythm section. Flexible instrumentation is used. This enables the music to be played by many combinations of instruments. Demo of the ensemble score was created by David Arivett.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
