On Green Dolphin Street
Smooth chords open the arrangement, leading us into the theme, which is sounded with freedom and space. The lead line swaps between players as the music unfolds, before the theme is sounded again, with more life as the bass part enjoys the limelight of playing the melody. A contrasting interlude distances us momentarily from the scene, giving space for reflection, before the music is drawn inevitably back to a charged upbeat section, exploring evolving colors and moods and giving a new take on the material from the theme. A second groove section audaciously drives the music on with ruder harmony and punchy dynamics.
The interlude returns, richly contemplating the music so far, before the theme returns once more. At its climax, the interlude enters to close the piece, adding a cheeky tinge before ushering in silence....
"Your arrangement has been in our music pad for a couple of years now and the lads really enjoy playing it."
Martin Dean, Bass Trombonist, British Army (Band of the Army Air Corps, Middle Wallop), UK, May 2010
