The annual Pitt Jazz Seminar and Concert has been a tradition for more than four decades, this being the 49th, bringing in renowned musicians for a week of lectures and events, concluding with a blow-out concert at the Carnegie Music Hall.

I am delighted to be asked to participate in this week, performing in the Collaborative Concert. We have been asked to bring one of our compositions! Excellent! Sounds like fun!
