Journey for alto saxophone and piano – now available on MusicaNeo

Journey started out as a song. Due to a misunderstanding with the poet, permission to set the poem was withdrawn. I then reworked the song as a solo for saxophone and piano. The poem was about a slave mother’s harsh reality as she traveled on a slave boat from Africa, so I felt the timbre of the saxophone perfectly captured the sorrow of the original words.

The piece was recently recorded by saxophonist Gary Louie and pianist Kirsten Taylor, and will be part of my upcoming double CD set, to be released on Naxos in December of 2019.
