The Influence of Benny Goodman Premiere

Bringing together both jazz and classical music side by side, Philip illustrates Goodman’s life-long desire to become a great classical clarinetist in as much as he was “the King of Swing”.  Philip premiered his work at the San Diego Central Library at their 2015 and continues to perform annually in both the Southeastern United States and in California.

The second half consists of Spanish flavored works: waltzes by Antonio Lauro, a Venezuelan composer and a spicy Flamenco piece by an American composer, Kenji Bunch.
