Alec Wilder (1907-1980), was an American composer whose original style fuses jazz, American song and European classical forms and techniques. His chamber music for brass is inventive, touching, beautifully crafted and thoroughly entertaining! While he didn’t reach the fame and wealth of George Gershwin his musical expression similarly blends popular and classical styles and bridges musical communities.
