    Ray,

    An interesting work to use to demonstrate the JABB soprano sax. But it works!!!! It is a nice instrument and often overlooked in a performance setting.

    Great choice of material for a sax demo, Ray;
    and some darned tricky handling of it, done well.

    Interesting listen!

    Thanks Gary, and David

    I didn't think this one up, Branford Marsalis did it for me back in 1986 on an album called Romances for Saxophone where he perfomed 13 pieces with the English Chamber Orchestra. I may finish one.!!!!!!!

    Very Interesting avant garde piece of wandering lines that really seem to fit abstractly. Well done! I swear I heard some bagpipes in their somewhere but maybe I'm getting tired-it's late. I love the soprano sax as you have used it in an very unusual way.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Nice! Thank you for this, Ray--Oh that Branford, some amazing musical ideas spring from the incredibly talented head of his.

    I like your idea of continuing to be inspired by this concept, and doing more. Yes!

    I thought that myself as my mouse caressed the chanter.

    Thanks Randy, I do enjoy any and every musical genre well executed.
    I think the first time I heard this Marsalis brother was playing a solo on a Sting song, possibly An Alien In New York, which probably was my first time listening to soprano sax and recognizing it as a solo instrument. How often in life we hear but we don't listen.
