NEA Jazz Masters Ceremony

See each 2019 NEA Jazz Master tribute and speech by clicking the following links: Abdullah Ibrahim, Bob Dorough, Maria Schneider, Stanley Crouch. The ceremony at the Kennedy was beautiful and this award is an honor I share with my orchestra of three decades. The performers are inseparable from my compositions, and I thank them and share this honor with them.

Blog

I’ve taken to writing open letters about issues facing the music community and our society at large. I hope you'll find it thought-provoking and will pass them on to others.

Scores & Education

Browsing scores is easy in our new Scores Store. The Education page presents items for players and composers. If you've participated in projects in the past, please revisit old offers, as in many instances, we’ve added content to those offers. 

Past ArtistShare Projects

I’ve shared my music through ArtistShare for 15 happy years. You, the fans, and I have been making recordings and commissions together for a very long time. Visit Past Projects to see just how much we've all created. Even pre-ArtistShare albums are now presented as “projects” – where we’ve added content, shedding new light on the past. 

Everything is presented ala “ArtistShare,"meaning that when you login after any purchase, you will find goodies galore to increase the fun and value of your purchase. Happy browsing, reading and listening.
