Anita Brown Jazz Orchestra: 27 EAST


Anita Brown Jazz Orchestra


This piece initially took its inspiration from the feelings of freedom, serenity and joy conjured in anticipation of arrival at the ocean beaches along Route 27 EAST on Long Island, NY. The melody was composed while sitting on the beach in Montauk, NY. Its orchestration is a result of careful observation of the irregular movement of the sea within its overall regularity. The various ways in which a wave crests and breaks or doesn't, have played a strong role in my choices of line shape and orchestral color. Along with its majesty, powers of cleansing and rejuvination, the sea will continue to draw me to "The End" of 27 EAST.
