Solo for Pete, commissioned by Helmut Calabrese through Calabrese Brothers Music, was written on request for Peter Jarvis and is dedicated to him and the memory of Ron Mazurek. When Peter asked me to compose a piece for drum set I immediately responded with an affirmative yes. I greatly admire Peter`s playing and musicianship plus I used to play the drums professionally for several years in dance bands. In fact learning to play the drums was the first thing I ever did musically. I have listened to solo drum set pieces all my life, but they have all been improvised solos by jazz drummers. There are virtually no written out drum set pieces which make`s Peter`s request so exciting. My piece is totally written out and is essentially not a jazz piece, but the influence of the solos of jazz greats Buddy Rich and Louie Bellson is heard in various places in my piece and to a lesser extent Gene Krupa, Shelly Manne and Sonny Payne. Solo for Pete has been recorded by Peter Jarvis for release on a Composers Concordance CD.

Solo for Pete was premiered by Peter Jarvis at Connecticut College, New Lodon CT USA on May 1, 2008

Solo for Pete has been recorded by Peter Jarvis for Composers Concordance Records as distributed by NAXOS.

Solo for Pete is included in Drumset Music for the Concert Stage, volume 1 which is an anthology of drumset pieces commissioned for Peter Jarvis by Calabrese Brothers Music.
The score is engraved by Peter Jarvis.
