Chicago Calling

That’s the name of the piece I just finished for the Chicago Jazz Festival.

Chicago Calling: Bowie, Barack, and Brass.

It’s written for the newly reformulated Brass Ecstasy band, with Vincent Chancey on French Horn, Luis Bonilla on trombone, Marcus Rojas on tuba, Ben Perowsky on drums and yours truly on trumpet. August 30 in Chicago on a bill with new pieces by Vijay Iyer and Gerald Wilson.
