Fiona's Comments

Hard and driving? The fugue is bright and formal and the jazz is a light, bubbling variety that siphons in the happy at the 40s mark.

About the Album

The most recognizable movement from "Toot Suite". Theme Song for Diane Rehm’s long running show on NPR. Opens with fugue between trumpet and piano and launches into hard driving, jazz waltz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
