Pollock Plays Jazz

A new composition for flute and guitar, co-commissioned my good friends Mark Delpriora and Laurel Zucker.  The piece is a book of eightpieces freely exploringsharp contrasts in mood, instrumental color and style. Several are also homages to favorite composers like Ralph Towner & Ennio Morricone, who’ve used the guitar in uniquely expressive ways.  “Pollock” was premiered at the 2006 Festival of New American Music in Sacramento. Mark & Laurel also gave the New York premiere of the piece in December ’06 at the New York Flute Club.  Laurel liked the piece so much she decided to record it for her label CantilenaRecords.  The disc, eponymously titled… “Pollock Plays Jazz”, was released in June of 2007.
