From our vantage, the lunar surface is calm - yet as with dreams, a surreal complexity is belied by the serene surface. This contrafact of "Moonlight Serenade" features jazz big band of clarinet, saxophones, strings, and rhythm section.

It is a period of syncopated beats. Funky music, striking from the fingers of untold musicians, has won a great victory for music listeners everywhere. During the track, a trumpet will play a solo accompanied by keys, bass, and drums.

It is a dark time for the Funk. Although the Square Beat has been destroyed, Square troops have driven the Funky forces from their hidden base and pursued them across many tonalities.

Paul Desmond likely intended his seminal cool jazz work, "Take Five", to refer to taking a brief respite from labor.

Space is quite far  apart. Within it, you  explore, and find new  strangeness. This isn't the  space you were looking for, and yet it is  what you sought.  Unexpected, and of  different composition - yet space,  nonetheless. Featuring unaccompanied  clarinet, with  creative reverb.
Topics: improvisation, solo, clarinet

Improvisation is the path to the unknown... improvisation leads to uncertainty... uncertainty leads to ambiguity... ambiguity requires clarification. Featuring drums and baritone saxophone on various points in the aforementioned continuum.
