Fronds (2012-2013)

  • Commissioned by baritone saxophonist and friend, Wayne Leechford, "Fronds" came about through my daily workout in the pool and watching the palms blowing in the breeze making different and unusual movements like dancers in the sky. Living in paradise (I live in Southern California although not everyone considers it paradise:-), we am lucky to have two swimming pools on the property where some 80 apartment units are located. On the bluest and brightest of sunlit days, I would do the back stroke and look up at the palm trees swaying in the breeze. The movements of the palm fronds were hypnotic and they swayed in a rhythmic way that I have attempted to translate into the sounds of the baritone saxophone.
  • Unaccompanied baritone saxophone
