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 second groove section audaciously drives the music on with ruder harmony and punchy dynamics. ativan drug 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....

"I really, really like your arrangements - I can see that a lot of effort has gone into creating both the sheet music and multitrack recordings - quality stuff!"
