Product details

This is a medium fast jazz composition in a swing style. The composition is in three sections. The piano part makes use of some syncopated counterpoint ideas. Bass and drums are accompanying and occasionally playing figures together with the piano. The composition is designed to feature improvisations over the form of the tune, but can also function perfectly well without this.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 set of 3 performance parts (8p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Medium — Some two-handed syncopated passages in the piano part

Duration: 7 mins

Commission info: Written to be performed by The Alister Spence Trio

First performance by Alister Spence, Lloyd Swanton, Toby Hall — 2000. Sony Music Studios, Sydney

The composer notes the following styles, genres, influences, etc associated with this work:
The piece is in a swing jazz style written for piano trio reflecting an interest in the work of: Thelonious Monk and Paul Bley. Other pieces I have written that demonstrate these influences are: 'Eagle Man' and 'The High Line' and 'Metric Sheds'.

Released on the album 'Three Is A Circle' in Australia on Rufus Records in 2000, and on Earth Spirit Records in Japan in 2003.
‘It would be no exaggeration to say that he, Spence, is fully rivalling the pianists who have brought about the present boom in piano trio music.’ Swing Journal (Japan), November 2003
