Work Overview

Every composer father seems to write a really sappy ballad for their new child. I was resisting this cliche, until Andrew O'Connell wanted to commission a ballad for the Blackburn High School Big Band, arguably Australia's finest high school big band. Of course this is not your usual ballad. It starts with the sweetest, happiest jazz baby ballad tune I could come up with, but then it gets a little more Timified. Being part of the trilogy also meant two soloists at the same time.
