||"Belden Bottom Line" was written in 2001 for the DePaul University Big Band (Belden Ave. is the street the music school is on). It features a funky, New Orleans-style, second-line feel that will keep the audience grooving. The chart is open to feature various soloists from all sections of the band. This tune won the 2009 Michael Arenson Jazz Composition Award. Also available as a PDF.
