Autumn Stroll $28 Difficulty ttt DEMO

Originally recorded on the album "Breather," this is a short (3:30) pretty, flowing, semi-minimalist piece written around a piano ostinato. Key of Ab (Db Lydian), but also dwells in other chord centers.

Full score
Tenor (lead) pan (1 player)
Double seconds (1 player)
Piano
Flute
Vibraphone
Glockenspiel



Me Bop (Won't Stop) $40 Difficulty ttttt+ DEMO

This is an advanced,  tour de force recital piece for three pan players, optional flute, and light percussion (shaker, triangle, splash cymbal). Based on a short, standard jazz chord progression, the piece reaches farther and farther "out" harmonically and melodically as it progresses, creating unique sonorities and chord voicings along the way, all the while keeping the listener's ear well grounded in the original structure. The package also contains combined double-seconds/cello part which could be used as one-player accompaniment (such as with a set of quads, or even on a keyboard instrument). Key of Gb.

The above demo is a MIDI-generated MP3 of the Finale file. An excerpt of the original recording (in F) can be found here, on the recording 
"My Two Cents" (Gary Gibson, 2000)

Full score
Solo Tenor (lead)
Double seconds (single player)
Guitar/cello (single player)
Flute (optional)
Percussion

"As a small ensemble piece, the work would be great on any recital, adding a colorful texture to the program."  - Jeannine Remy, Percussive Notes Magazine



Twenty Again $28 Difficulty tttt DEMO

Also from the album "Breather," this piece is written in 5/4 meter, and has a pretty, optimistic sound to it. Contrapuntal writing and a floating, breezy middle section keep this piece interesting all the way through. Roughly four minutes in length. A great program pairing with "Autumn Stroll."

Full score
Tenor (lead) pan (1 player)
Double seconds (1 player)
Piano
Vibraphone
Glockenspiel
