In this set of three pieces I have tried to create a jazz and baroque fusion playable by flexible instrumentation – flute, oboe (or clarinet/violin) and piano (the ‘classical’ version), or trumpet (or alto saxophone), tenor saxophone, piano, bass and drums. Fusion of this kind seems to work best when classical structure and devices are infused with jazz idiom – this lends contemporary ‘streetwise’ vigour to old aesthetics. The alternative, fusing classical idiom with jazz structures is less natural – a bit like abandoning a sheltered spinster in a nightclub on the wrong side of town (admittedly, previously sheltered spinsters may have un-guessed resources…). Within this paradigm, the challenge was to create a flexible style that would sound credible - not too much like classical instruments trying to ‘tough up’ to play jazz, or jazz instruments behaving themselves while in church.

This version is intended for jazz quintet: there is no specific drum part (I prefer drummers to be creative - the drummer can annotate the bass part and use that as a guide) and, preferably, the solos should be improvised.

Note that the score has been designed to act as the piano part – it is not necessary to purchase the separate piano part (which has not been formatted).
