Listen to: New Works 2006 Lake Songs CD

notes
Chicago Song Advanced - Style: 3/4 ECM Groove
A musical “documentary” of a recent flight to Chicago. A hypnotic groove and a powerful shout simulate the sensations of riding on air.

Dit Dot Level: Medium Advanced- Style: Latin
An energetic Latin excursion with a loose reference to Morse code. Anyway…that’s the “long and the short of it!”

Earth Song Level: Easy - Style: 3/4 Rock
Written for younger bands. A confidence builder with powerful scoring and solid rhythm section parts.

Inspector 43 Level: Medium Advanced - Style: Medium Swing
A “spy-groove” swinger. Full of musical mystery and intrigue!

Lake Songs I – Swingin’ on a Swing in the Spring Level: Medium Advanced - Style: Up Tempo Swing
From the Lake Songs Suite – Give your band a chance to stretch out and explore some new modal territory.

Lake Songs II – Slopes and Dots Level: Medium - Style: Ballad
From the Lake Songs Suite. A beautiful ballad based on the hills of the Finger Lakes region of New York State

Lake Songs III – Ducks(sss!) Level: Medium Advanced - Style: Funk
From the Lake Songs Suite. This Funk chart has saxes making “foul” sounds in the intro.. Solid scoring and a great groove make this chart a real crowd pleaser. It has never failed to get the audience right where you want them!

Quiet Song Level: Medium Advanced - Style: Latin Rock
A delicate opening and an explosive ensemble section. Beautiful scoring and colorful harmonic content.

Spaces Level: Medium - Style: Ballad
This composition seems to come from some other harmonic “space”. It is hauntingly beautiful.

Vertigo Level: Medium Advanced - Style: Up Tempo Swing
The momentum of this piece is dizzying! An energetic swinger right to the very end.
