I wrote Dear Miss Upstill in 2009. In writing this piece I aimed to create an extended big band work that includes improvised jazz solos while maintaining a strong sense of compositional direction, shape and form. It features solo flugelhorn on a solo ballad melody accompanied by the ensemble.
Instrumentation: Flugelhorn (doubling trumpet), 3 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 saxophones, piano, guitar, bass, drums. Featured flugelhorn/trumpet on ballad melody and improvised solo and featured tenor saxophone on improvised solo.
Duration: 11 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Odette Upstill who died suddenly at the age of 24
The Composer states the following influences on this work:
Bob Brookmeyer, Kenny Wheeler.
