Composer & Arranger

Works for small ensembles or large orchestral forces. This piece was substantial enough to carpet the studio floor. The cat did not approve of the trumpet obligato at bar 247, so we had to buy a rug instead.

I continue to be amazed at the ability of Jon Loomes to bring the songs to life with such creativity and skill. ” - Eliza Delf
