  2. Greetings Bert,

    You may recall some 12-14 years ago attending an IAJE Conference when we presented your fantastic ensemble. I was the Director of Education at the time and worked hard to get you guys on the program. We also connected regarding your big bad charts – still some of my favorite writing today!

    I have been doing a fair amount of All-State bands here in the US (and some in Canada) and want to continue to introduce directors to your music.

    Please respond back to me so we can have a private conversation about the charts I am interested in and some ideas to help you move the charts more here in the US.

    I can be reached via my email address of

    My cell phone is 816-588-4804

    Looking forward to hearing right back from you.

    Your friend in Jazz,
