Program Notes

Mam-Blu is a fusion of mambo and the blues. The montunos and syncopations of Latin-American music are combined with the form and harmonic structure of the North American 12-bar blues. The result is a hybrid music symbolic of the collision of both worlds. This version for flexible instrumentation was originally the first movement of my American Dances for string orchestra (2006).
