“I was honored to compose JEN-TEN for big band in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Jazz Education Network. The piece is dedicated to the founders of JEN, Mary Jo Papich and Dr. Lou Fischer. JEN-TEN is an uptempo swinger with a prominent bass line and solo—in honor of bassist Dr. Lou—additional solos for tenor saxophone, trombone, trumpet and drums and a roaring shout chorus. The premiere was presented by the JEN All Stars Big Band at the 2019 JEN Conference in Reno featuring soloists Bob Sinicrope, bass (past President); Roxy Coss, tenor saxophone (JEN Board); Francisco Torres, trombone (JEN Board); Sean Jones (President Elect); and Bob Breithaupt, drums (JEN Board); performing with Julius Tolentino (JEN Board), Caleb Chapman (Past President), Jeff Coffin and Claire Daly, saxophones; Liesl Whitaker, Pharez Whitted (JEN Board), Todd Stoll (President) and Scott Belk, trumpets; Jay Ashby, Tony Baker and Ashley Shabankareh (JEN Board), trombones; and Monika Herzig (Past Board Member), piano.” –GWY
