As a composer, Nathan Tanouye has written works for a variety of ensembles, ranging from jazz trio to concert band. In February of 2004, the UNLV Wind Orchestra premiered Three Steps Forward, a piece written by Mr. Tanouye to feature Eric Marienthal, Will Kennedy, Jimmy Haslip, and Russell Ferrante, later recorded and released on the Klavier label. Since that time, Mr. Tanouye has written two more pieces also commissioned by UNLV; Kokopelli’s Dance (2005) and Four Flew Over the Hornet’s Nest (2006). In 2010, he completed Loki's Revenge, commissioned by the Southeastern Conference Band Directors Association, and most recently had his commissioned work, Desert Flight, performed by the Las Vegas Philharmonic in 2015.
