Anita Brown



Commissioned by Westchester Jazz Orchestra

In mid March I was happy to accept a commission from Mike Holober to write an arrangement for The Westchester Jazz Orchestra's "Jazz Goes Motown" concert, scheduled for June 2, 2007. Click "Calendar" for details. I have selected a favorite of mine from the 1970's, "Dancing Machine," popularized by The Jackson 5. Hopefully, I will be able to reminisce with the audience while taking them on a journey presented by the notion of creating a jazz version of one of the funkiest and simplest tunes in the Motown collection. Hope you can make it!
