If Debussy Wrote Jazz... - solo piano -  (1995) - duration 1:35 minutes. An exploration of pitch sets that form chords of major seventh, minor seventh, dominant seventh and diminished sevenths. It sounded to me a little like what Debussy might have improvised during a 1930s lounge piano gig had he lived then.

Around 3 AM - piano, alto saxophone, trumpet, clarinet - duation 8:10. One of two contest winners composed for and premiered by Quiet City Chamber Ensemble at Rutgers University in December 2014. The QCCE discovered and recorded the "lost" incidental music that Aaron Copland created with this instrumentation for the play "Quiet City." Then they held a contest for pieces with that instrumentation. One of two winners. Unique staging has since made this work a popular addition at new music festivals. See YouTube Video by the QCCE. 507X.mp3
