Anonymous yet personal, this Blog chronicles
the daily events and musings of Jim.
It provides an easy way for his friends and family to check in on him,
and serves as a online repository for his random
thoughts, kaleidoscopic flashbacks, and writings on an array of diverse topics.
“Deconstructing Jim” is simply here to
entertain you, but not intended for college credit.

Members of the ensemble are: Jon Nelson - trumpet 1, Tim Leopold - trumpet 2, Dan Grabois - French horn, Ben Harrington - trombone, and Raymond Stewart - tuba.

2) All Set (1957) is scored for alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, trombone, bass, piano, vibraphone, and percussion (trap set).
