Week 4 – Legacy

Before the last days of summer escape us, Clay and I took a field trip to Laurelhurst Park for our Duo Chronicles song this week.

“Legacy” is a tune that I wrote a couple of years ago and have played in a variety of contexts, from a saxophone quartet arrangement, to an electric jazz/funk group.  This particular version (just melodica and saxophone) is the most sparse instrumentally that I’ve done, so we relied on a lot of counterpoint-style improvisation to get through.

Check out the sheet music to get an idea of what we were working with.
