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.

Counted “In 2”, this Afro-Cuban groove in 6/8 for the Rhythm Section is pitted against a melody in “Straight Eighths” 2/4, thereby resulting in a rhythmic tension otherwise unavailable in either meter.

Almost completely over an A pedal, the nebulous harmony created in conjunction with the melody creates a floating sensation analogous to the fog rolling in to the shoreline as the revolving light relentlessly endeavors to pierce through it.
