Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory is part of a growing collection of Americana Miniatures, short, mostly instrumental arrangements of characteristically American folk music. This arrangement is set for four trombones, or three trombones and tuba, but is also suitable for any combination of four low brass instruments in ‘C’. The music is instantly recognizable and appealing to broad audiences and playable by musicians of moderate skill.
a polytonal etude
For Bb Tenor Saxophone and Piano
Something a Little Different is a brief excursion into bi-tonality for tenor sax and piano. It’s a little bit jazzy, a little bit impressionistic, a little bit 20th century, and, well, something a little different. Suitable for intermediate and above players, this is a fun to piece to play and to hear. While it is unique and modern in its stylings, Something a Little Different is easy on the ears and very accessible for all kinds of audiences. It makes a great recital piece for the up and coming saxophonist to show off, or would work as a transition movement in a concert program, or for any program needing 21st century works.
