To all readers of The Jazz Clarinet, especially young professionals out of work due to the pandemic: I'm thrilled to announce the opening of the ICCC Jazz Clarinet Competition. This is a competition designed to give young pro jazz clarinetists a chance to show their skills and advance their careers despite this difficult set of circumstances we're in. There are some great prizes and major backers. I'm on the panel of judges, and honored to have one of my compositions presented as an option for contestants. The tune is called 'Euclid Avenue Jump' and gives players a chance to really show some technique and soul in a fast jump blues.
