When I Go Away

When I Go Away: This is a composition I wrote while I was a student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.  I came across it a while ago and decided that it was worth including in my repertoire.  The title stems from the fact that I had to be away from everyone I cared about in Winnipeg in order to do my jazz performance degree.  While I have no regrets about that choice, there is a bittersweet tone to the piece because I always found it so painful to leave when it was time to return to school after a visit home.

I would like to acknowledge Larry Roy's contribution to the arrangement, as well as Don Thompson's creative suggestions.
