Program Notes

Steven Spielberg's 2002 film Catch Me If You Can was set in the 1960s, and John Williams created a marvelous film score evoking the style of the progressive jazz movement popular during that time. Soloists on alto saxophone, vibraphone and string bass are featured in this suite of three contrasting movements.
