Unpublished – Contact the composer


This piece for solo bassoon was commissioned by bassoonist Hunter Thomas of the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra.  The three short movements explore jazz styles — a blues, a ballad, and a Latin jazz feel.  In each movement the bassoonist also plays hi-hat and/or shaker while playing the bassoon.
