billboardlogoThe Tutti team was grateful to be selected to participate in the Innovator’s Showcase at Billboard’s FutureSound Conference in San Francisco this year. We had a blast.

Three of our favorite themes were:
1.) Over the last twelve months there has been a shift towards openness from artists, managers, and even labels.
2.) The importance of tracking and creating accurate metadata for music content.
3.) The importance and beauty of providing cultural context to the music. Music experiences, “digital albums”, and recommendation algorithms of the future will capture the feeling, culture, and politics of the music. yes.

Lower Moreland in the House


Soon after launching the Essentially Ellington Tutti collection, we noticed that the Tutti Music Player was getting a lot of use in Pennsylvania (thank you, Google Analytics). And since a road trip from New York to Louisiana had been planned, we decided to stop by one of the high schools that was playing with Tutti Music Player the most: Lower Moreland High School.

We had a great visit with Erin Stroup and the students in his wind ensemble, which included about 15 members of the jazz band.  So awesome to see such bright young people learning this music.

After years of developing Tutti, it was humbling to meet a classroom of students who have used – and loved – the Tutti Music Player. Thanks to the whole class for taking the time to check it out and good luck with the Essentially Ellington competition.


New Release: Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra



We just released this year’s music education videos featuring Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center for the Essentially Ellington 2012 – 2013 high school jazz band competition.

The interactive music collection features six big band songs composed by Duke Ellington and performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Wynton Marsalis. With Tutti Music Player, students can now study music alongside the world’s most accomplished jazz musicians.

If you are participating in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington program, email us for access to the music: support (at)

We look forward to hearing from you and can’t wait for this year’s Essentially Ellington competition!
