I am delighted to announce my new CD (February 2019)- Bolling & Beyond: Lisa Jelle, Jazz-Inspired Flute. Mark Flugge Remembered! It begins with three live movements from the archives, of Mark and me playing the Bolling Suite at the very first Chamber Jazz at the Museum Concert. Next are three chamber arrangements of Mark’s pieces Erika Kristen (by Stan Smith, with me and Roger Hines on bass); Flugge Jazz Fantasy (Ahmad, The Letter, Samba Fantasy) for PANdemonium4 flute quartet (Kim Goodman, Lindsey Goodman, me, Andy Woodson on bass, Chris Carmean on percussion) by Andy Frederick; and Blessings arranged for woodwind quintet by Christopher Weait for the QuintEssential Winds (me, Melissa Stevens, Gail Zugger, Betsy Sturdevant, Kimberley McCann). The last six tracks are arrangements of Mark’s pieces for the truly stellar Mark Tribute Big Band in January 2018. These are Action Planet (arr. Bob Larson); Beatrice, the Cat (arr. Kim Pensyl); Around Every Corner (arr. Bill Dobbins); February’s Promise (arr. Mark Lopeman); Dear Bill (arr. Paul Ferguson); and Feeling, Not Words (arr. Bob Larson). Thanks to all the amazing musicians who came together to make this release possible!
