Dreaming of the Masters III was composed in 2010 for trumpet virtuoso Jens Lindemann and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. It received it's American premiere at Carnegie Hall in 2012. The band adaption was done by the composer in 2013.My “Dreaming” series arose from a desire to combine my experience as an orchestral composer with my background as a jazz player. I wanted to write a series of Jazz Concertos for soloists who where comfortable in both classical and jazz idioms. Each concerto would be inspired by the jazz greats of the instrument I was writing for and though fully notated, would allow the player to improvise. Dreaming of the Masters I was a clarinet concerto written for James Campbell and Dreaming of the Masters II was a piano concerto written for William Eddins. Dreaming III, written for Jens Lindemann, isn't as clear‐cut as the rest. The obvious choices would have been a concerto inspired by Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie but I think because I'm a trumpet player myself it seemed too obvious. The piece is really more of an homage to the trumpet in popular music rather than any real individuals.The three movements are titled; 101 Damnations, Prayer and Lower Neighbours. 101 Damnations pays homage to the trumpet in jazz starting with a slow New Orleans blues that moves into a 1940’s style big band swing. Prayer is a flugelhorn ballad. It starts and ends with cadenza like statements surrounded by colorful orchestration. Lower Neighbours is a tribute to the Spanish/Latin tradition of the trumpet. I like to think of it as Herbert L. Clarke meets Tito Puente. .
