A N I T A B R O W N J A Z Z O R C H E S T R A Presents A Program Honoring America’s Collective Grief and Resilience Relating to Our National Tragedy on September 11, 2001 September 10, 2011 ~ A World Premiere ~ Stand: A Symphony for Jazz Orchestra Composed, Arranged & Conducted by Anita Brown An original symphony for jazz orchestra in five movements I. The Homeland Solos: Dave Pietro, alto sax; Ed Xiques, baritone sax; Kenny Wessel, Guitar; Jim Ridl, piano; Mike Christianson, trombone; Ralph Lalama, tenor sax; Tatum Greenblatt, trumpet A blues, this cyclical, American form, treated in the definitively American swing tradition, allows some of our nation’s most accomplished jazz artists to speak freely through their unique voices. Pre-dating 9/11/01, we are reminded of the security we enjoyed as a nation on 9/10/01. The melody for this blues was derived from manipulation of the melody in Movement V.
