This suite was written several years ago for my duo, Ebony & Ivory
. In the first part,
, I tried to capture the feel of a classic Leroy Anderson tune: melodic, with a Latin touch. Although it was originally
composed for clarinet and piano only, bass and drums give the piece added energy.
The second part of the suite, Brisa, was simply the most beautiful melody I could think of at the time.
The (mostly) slow tempo provides a marked contrast to the final part of the suite.
The title of part 3, ¡Olé!, pretty much sums it up. As I always say when performing this one live, "You'll feel like
you're running with the bulls in spain!"
