Program Notes

The Outlook is a Jewell march that demonstrates some of the traits of the circus march – scale passages in contrary motion, jagged doubled dotted rhythms that seem to suggest the lurching motion of a bandwagon on rough roads, melodic motion by wide interval rather than scalewise, and a degree of chromaticism that causes momentary harmonic instability, which is best illustrated at the introduction to the trio. Jewell was a virtuoso euphonium player, and he often assigned that instrument a more florid countermelody that was not doubled by the trombones. This is the case with much of The Outlook, as the trombones serve in the role of harmonic structure rather than melodic participant. The march was one of 16 included in C.L. Barnhouse band booklet The Jewell March Book. There is no dedication line, and the derivation of the title is unknown.
