A composition inspired by the greek mythological creature the
Chimera: “Who breathed raging fire, a creature fearful, great,
swift-footed and strong, who had three heads, one of a grim-eyed lion; in her hinderpart, a dragon; and in her middle, a goat, breathing forth a fearful blast of blazing fire.” (Homer, the Iliad.) This piece is playful and organically composed, put together in a somewhat similar way to the Chimera; a monster of a tune.
The track features: Roy McGrath: tenor sax; Justin Copeland: trumpet;
Mike Allemana: guitar; Kitt Lyles: bass; Gustavo Cortiñas: drums.
