ENTER SPRING was commissioned by the Cal Poly Pomona Jazz Ensemble, David Kopplin, director in 2018 and was premiered in May 2018. It is a lyrical but swinging composition in three. Beautiful expressive melodies and solo space for piano, tenor saxophone, and guitar. There are optional parts for flute and soprano voice that add a beautiful color to the piece. This piece will provide a fine contrast in a concert that includes a substantial amount of difficult music.
