Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jett Hitt was born in Bentonville, Arkansas and grew up near there on a ranch. He often refers to himself as an "Ozark Mountain Hillbilly" with a penchant for training horses, and to authenticate his heritage he will be more than happy to tell you about his grandfather who was incarcerated during the 1930s for making moonshine.

He is often asked whether "Jett" is his given name, and indeed it is. He was named for Jett Rink, the character played by James Dean in the 1956 movie "Giant."

Jett holds degrees in both music and German, including a doctorate in music composition. His teachers have included Miles Osland, Joseph Baber, Ted Hansen, and Carolyn Hickson. His works include

He has worked as a professor at the Technische Hochschule in Merseburg, Germany, Idaho State University, and Sam Houston State University.

He is now an outfitter in Yellowstone National Park, giving guided horseback tours, including pack trips, day rides and fly fishing trips.

What an inspiration for my day! I have been to Yellowstone and this music depicts the softly powerful atmosphere of the mountains. Simply stunning. I believe you mentioned this playing was a first? Please, include Hitt on your playlist often =) Thank you!" Report Abuse
