Subj: [kl] Jazzy Pieces for Clarinet
Date: Wed, 10 Nov 2010 10:39:57 -0500

I have composed several compositions involving clarinet that are influenced by jazz. My most recent one is Hep Cats for unaccompanied clarinet. It depicts three varieties of cats, therefore creating a double meaning for the title. The first movement "Siamese" is in swing style. The second movement "Angora" is haunting and bluesy. The last movement "Tom" uses rock rhythms and figures. Three Jazzy Pieces for flute, clarinet and cello was composed for Camerati Trio. The three movements are Riffs, Blues and Jitterbug. Riffs consists of many riffs treated contrapuntally and homophonically. The Blues is very torchy with a lighter section in the middle. The Jitterbug is in rondo form with each instrument having a written out jazz solo. You can see and hear these compositions at my website Thanks for considering my music.
