"This music pushes the boundaries and still stays within the big band context that we work with. And Tom has also come up with a way for students and teachers to easily immerse themselves in his music on his site. My own students have really loved playing Tom’s music and I hope other teachers will share it with their students!"

-- Dan Fabricious - NYSSMA Instrumental Jazz Review, April 2006
"These are great pieces - contemporary in style, well crafted works which will I know your high school / college students will really enjoy!"

-- Howard Potter-Eastman School of Music Community Ed Division, Director, Eastman Jazz Educators Jazz Orchestra
"I am always seeking out fresh and innovative material for my high school jazz bands. Tom's new charts are challenging and musically rewarding. The tunes explore new pathways in large ensemble writing, and allow for very personal statements of creativity by the players and their director. I appreciate his "raising the bar," and hope that other writers will be influenced and encouraged by some of the risks Tom has taken with this recent output.

-- Bill Tiberio-Director, Fairport (NY) High Jazz Program and former president, NYS Chapter of IAJE.
