Program Notes

While much of the work is scored for jazz trio, the band plays backgrounds and interludes, sometimes joining in surreptitiously before taking over. The 24-minute work begins wistfully, and then develops a real head of steam with some high-energy improvisation by the trio.

- Program Note from liner notes of Mark CD Monkey.

I’ve long admired Stefan Karlsson’s artistry. Tom Leslie, conductor of University of Nevada, Las Vegas Wind Orchestra commissioned this piece especially for Stefan in 1999. Like its title suggests, it is basically a lyrical piece. Its themes are introduced early on, like full-blown songs. Then they return as fragments or echoes throughout the piece, even as they are re-contextualized by the improvisations of the featured artists.
