Program Notes

While many people don’t realize it, jazz was some of the first music I ever composed. For years, in fact, it was my one and only love. One of my favorite tunes during that time was All the Things You Are. If you are familiar with the song, you likely know its opening interval is an ascending perfect fourth. In turn, my composition utilizes and expands upon the same interval, using the original idea as the basis for a new piece. All the Things I’m Not is a playful and affectionate nod to this famous jazz standard.

- Program Note from score

All the Things You Are is a song composed by Jerome Kern with lyrics written by Oscar Hammerstein II. The song was written for the musical Very Warm for May (1939) and was introduced by Hiram Sherman, Frances Mercer, Hollace Shaw, and Ralph Stuart. It appeared in the film Broadway Rhythm (1944) when it was sung by Ginny Simms, and again in the Kern biopic Till the Clouds Roll By (1946), sung by Tony Martin.
