    "The Old Chief's Lookout" portrays Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania's Chimney Rocks a few hundred years ago, when the land was occupied by the Susquehannock Indians.

    It's a contemporary-sounding piece with strong melodies and modest brass ranges, and a good solo vehicle for your top 2 trombone players and lead saxophone.

    "Old Chief" was chosen as the winner of the PA Jazz Collective's 2016 Jazz Composition Contest.

    As recorded by Rick Hirsch's Big Ol' Band on their 2017 album Pocono Git-Down.
