Ride - Samuel Hazo

Ride was written as a gesture of appreciation for all of the kind things Jack Stamp has done for me: ranging from his unwavering friendship to his heartfelt advice on composition and subjects beyond. The common thread in all of these things was Jack Stamp. I began to receive phone calls from all over the country, inquiring about my music, and when I traced back the steps of how someone so far away could know of my then unpublished works, all paths led to either reading sessions Jack had conducted, or recommendations he made to band directors about the new pieces for wind band. The noblest thing about him was that he never let me reciprocate in any way, not even allowing me to buy him dessert after a concert. All he would ever say is, "just keep sending me music," which I could only take as the privilege it was, as well as an opportunity to give something back that was truly unique.
