work details

Remembering

  • Instrumentation: flugelhorn, piano
  • Completed: February 2006
  • Duration: 4 minutes
  • Program Note:

    Remembering for flugelhorn and piano was written for my good friend Omar Williams, who had interests in both jazz and classical music. His playing and sound were the inspiration for this little ditty, a quirky and lyrical work that inhabits both extemporaneous and rhythmically propulsive worlds. 

    The work is dedicated to Omar Williams.
