My composition, Remembrance, is written in tribute to the 100 year celebration of Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, and Leonard Bernstein. I consider them all to be renegades of their time. I am so delighted to have the excellent PNME perform this work. Composing for these stellar musicians has been an enormous challenge. I have loved every minute of it. Thank you to the American Composer’s Forum for his opportunity.
