"Hip To The Blues published by Santorella Publications is a series of 22 jazz duets that combine the best elements of education, playability and musical fun. These lyrical melodies are unique to the industry. The CD is recorded in a “music minus one” fashion with the duet being played in entirety (both parts) if your stereo is evenly balanced. Move the balance to right or left channel to isolate the top or bottom (1st or 2nd) part and play along with Rick Rossi, one of the best studio saxophone or flute reedmen in Los Angeles today.
For flute, violin, viola, & cello. Divertimento is, as its name implies, a light work, and one that was written with the enjoyment of the players much in mind. The musical sources are international - French, a touch of Russian, a bit of jazz. The fast section of the second movement has short "character" motifs for each instrument, which are sometimes played alone, sometimes mixed, rather like individual steps in an exuberant country dance.
Note by the composer: In 1983 I was commissioned to write a piece for the Huntingdon Trio, a versatile group of musicians whose skills cover several instrumental combinations. I chose to write a substantial piece for flute, cello, and piano, with more emphasis on melody than much of the music being written at that time, so I called it "Lyric Trio".
For beatbox flute quartet in 3 movements.
Note from the composer: My inspiration to write Loops came from a desire to expand the complexity of, and possibilities within, the beatbox genre of flute chamber music, beyond what is achieveable in an improvisational setting. At its roots, beatboxing is an improvisational art; however, as in jazz, structure is required in order to perform with larger ensembles. While there are no improvisational elements in these quartets, they may serve as a departure point for flutists who wish to improvise and compose with other beatboxers and musicians.
