Piano part from Ecstatic Regret [4-tet version]

7 minutes
Other parts

This is slightly different from the solo piano version. The additional melodic instrument allows for some contrapuntal complexities, yet also, through the saxophone's sustained sound capacity, for melodic simplifications. Though the bass part is written out, the registers, notes, and figures can be modified, if the bassist chooses. Similarly, revoicing the chords in spots is not to be ruled out, if it achieves a more musical result.

The piece is enthusiastically dedicated to Ms. Laila Biali, brilliant pianist and dear soul. To preserve her anonymnity in the Witness Protection Program, I took the precaution of misspelling her name on the printed sheet..

This piece has recently been recorded by a tiopflight crew of Toronto musicians, under the leadership of guitarist Steve Cole. I'll post the MP3 as soon as it's available.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
