Free Range Urban Lizard
A musical narrative inspired by the unforgettable visual pun (and title) offered by a SibMus competition a few years ago - an image of a lizard reclining on a baby grand piano: the very picture of a "lounge lizard." That image called to mind, for me, the following story:
It’s late night in the lounge. A Lizard, Mr. Scales, makes his customary grand entrance. All eyes turn to him, human eyes, every one. Mr. Scales greets the regulars, accepts the stares, the price of notoriety, the price of being different from the crowd. He’s escorted to his table, at which he’s the center of attention. Hangers-on and admirers approach him. But for all the attention and acclaim he gets he’s still just one Lizard on his own. But then, suddenly, he sees movement near the entrance, a shadow, a profile. It’s another Lizard! And not just another Lizard, but - as he can see in a flash - it’s THE Lizard. Mr. Scales, it’s time to make your move!
In the telling of the story, the sax explores some contrasting moods while the rest of the ensemble supports his "character" and helps set the scene.
