"It is a thrill and privilege for me to work with the team at the CMC in this capacity, as space is created where the work of our immensely talented jazz composers can be showcased nationally and internationally. Amanda Tosoff and Jocelyn Gould are two exceptionally talented, dedicated, and hardworking musicians and composers. The musical excellence that they embody as musicians, composers, and band leaders, is precisely what this series is about."
