(*) Indicates tunes with lyrics

27 EAST
A tune which attempts to depict the movement and energy of the sea at Montauk, NY, tapping the elements of its irregular movement within its overall regularity by the use of some changing meters in the head. The blowing changes remain in a lilting 6/4.

A selection derived from feelings of despondency, grief and contempt. In its orchestration, the soprano sax solo is marked “An Agonized Vibe”. This challening, unusual piece is makes a great quick arrangement for a small ensemble.
