This is my attempt at music in the Progressive Jazz style of the 1950s, when men wore buzz cuts, skinny ties, stingy-brim hats and sharkskin suits. (I still own two such suits, both purchased at pawn shops, but sadly, I’m unable to fit into either.)

If nothing else, I hope that this encourages young people to try making music in three – the forgotten meter. There’s much that can be done in triple meter – other than Ooom-pah-pah.
For the most part, the piece is in Dorian mode, but I cop-out at the end.
I invite all you hotshot instrumentalists out there in computerland to download the MIDI file of the piece, delete the saxophone track (which is excessively high), and record a better lead part on any instrument – flute, clarinet, soprano sax, cornetto, recorder, slide whistle, kazoo, &c.
