ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Tom Erickson is in the vanguard of the most recent wave of jazz composers writing for large ensemble. With one foot in the big band tradition, his other foot is planted firmly in the future, drawing on a number of genres from all over the world of music. I really like what I hear from him now, and I believe that this CD is a harbinger of great things to come. Long story short: keep your ears and eyes on Tom Erickson!"

- Jim McNeely

The Flying Dragon Orchestra, led by Tom Erickson, is excited to release their debut CD. The CD features 8 original compositions and one re-arranged standard, while showcasing the talents of 18 of Denver's finest musicians. Tom's compositions have been performed by the HGM Jazzorkestar Zagreb, Ninth and Lincoln Orchestra, William Paterson University Jazz Orchestra feat. Randy Brecker, North Texas Lab Bands, University of Denver Jazz Orchestra, and one of the compositions from the CD (If Only For A Moment) was recently chosen to be performed by Chuck Owen and the Jazz Surge at the 2nd annual International Jazz Composers Symposium.
