My arrangement of a beautiful composition by Bennie Maupin, one of the few other instrumentalists to utilize the bass clarinet. Here I've taken his piece's repeating bassline and counterline (heard in their original form at 1:15-2:04 ) and fleshed out a full arrangement including new harmonies and additional solo section (at 4:35-7:54). Filmed January 21, 2013 performance at the Kennedy Center with: Todd Marcus (bass clarinet) Lyle Link (tenor sax) Brent Birkhead (flute and alto sax) Russell Kirk (alto sax) Alex Norris (trumpet) Darent Polk (trombone) Xavier Davis (piano) Jeff Reed (bass) Warren Wolf (drums)
