Solo trumpet in Bb, c.3'20
The pitch material is based upon a series of related chords, each of which involves a common low F sharp and the D which is a minor thirteenth above. The melodic style is very angular with intervals such as sixths, sevenths and ninths being prominent. Recorded on Improvisations and Comprovisations with Scott Tinker (trumpet), Wirr 051 available online.
Cornet and piano, c.5'0
The Rag is descriptive and performer and listener will not find it difficult to relate the chromatic scales, the grace notes, the running and walking music, to the ever-new shock of entering the cold water; the warmth of the sand underfoot and the droplets of water gleaming on the ocean or on arms and legs of people at the beach.
Available on "Raging with Razz" CD (Wirr 029)
Trumpet in C and piano, c.6'00
A simple ternary form, with the reprise of the A material being a little shorter than its first incarnation and without the use of the plunger mute in the trumpet part. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=851h4u7kJW0
