I GOT RHYTHM
ME AND MY SHADOW
A charming vignette of someone and his shadow as they return home after midnight, with the second harp mimicking the first harp shadowlike. In the second chorus listen for the familiar tunes Hail, Hail The Gang's All Here and Goodnight Ladies. Then the harps turn out the lights, and go to sleep.
A traditional Hebrew religious melody that conveys a feeling-of inner serenity.
The surging of the sea against the shore... the flying of the flag from the mast of a ship with the fresh ocean spray sweeping across your face... it is all here.
LOST IN A FOG
A soliloquy of a lost soul on a sea of loneliness. The foghorn effect is created by a bowed bass violin.
THAT OLD DEVIL MOON
A different treatment of a great show tune. Imagine a voodoo ritual beginning quasi
mysterious building to a frenzied pitch. It ends on a subdued tone as That Old Devil Moon
is obscured by a cloud.
HOLIDAY FOR STRINGS
DANCING ON THE CEILING
Picture a dark room with an open fireplace ... watch the shadows dance across the ceiling, as interpreted in the first chorus. The second time through the melody moves together with its counterpoint, and the waltz interlude during the second chorus is the memory of days gone by.
THE BREEZE AND I
An oriental bolero... The use of temple blocks and gongs could almost lead one to believe he were watching the renowned Japanese kabuchi dancers.
An old English folk song treated somewhat as it might have been performed with lutes and pipes in medieval England.
BAD ANGEL BLUES
Even an angel must have weak moments. Starting with a slow hymn, gradually becoming more rhythmic until our angels and their friends abandon themselves wholeheartedly to the beat... hardly a heavenly atmosphere.
LADY OF SPAIN
A flamenco dance by a beautiful seņorita... and half way through she leaves the
spotlight to stage an exotic interpretation right in front of your table.
