JEN Co-Founder Dr. Lou Fischer
The music of Erik Morales (born Dec. 10, 1966, New York, New York) has a unique melodic and harmonic vocabulary that appeals to audiences worldwide and has composed best-selling music for many types of genres including classical, jazz, commercial. His many published works encompass a large variety of styles and settings, including works for wind, orchestral, jazz and chamber ensembles and have been part of featured performances across the globe. In addition to his published works he also is commissioned regularly by schools and organizations nationwide. A good portion of Mr. Morales’ work focuses on achieving a balance between artistic and educational literature. He studied composition at Florida International University, and completed his bachelor’s degree at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette (1989).
Currently, Mr. Morales maintains an active composing and conducting schedule. Mr. Morales’ concert and orchestral works are published exclusively through The FJH Music Company, Inc. and his jazz ensemble music is published through Belwin Jazz, a division of Alfred Publishing. All of Mr. Morales’ trumpet and chamber music editions are self-published and are available exclusively through MoralesMusic.com.

“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
