I write having just returned from sunny Arizona, where I was visiting the NASA Region 2 Conference (no, not that NASA). The weekend was packed with stellar performances: thanks to the hard work of the University of Arizona saxophone studio, I caught works by Biedenbender, Pann, Mellits, Zoulek, and on and on. I also saw a smattering of premieres, including AJ Pratt and Hannah Creviston’s performance of my piece for tenor sax with piano, good cloud days.
