Posted on by Martin TerensMartin Receives Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award

I am very glad about being among the recipients of ASCAP’s 2014 Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Awards. This award really means a lot to me. With these annual awards, ASCAP is not only being financially supportive of young jazz composers but also acknowledges the intense creative work behind each composition. Congratulations to all winners this year! Check out the recording of my winning composition ‘Lost’ on Soundcloud: it was recorded with Joel Frahm as a special guest a few months ago at one of the bi-weekly jazz nights at International House NY.
