LKMP X642802/ HL 102759
Flute (doubling Alto Flute), Piano, Double Bass, Drums
En Rouge et Noir means literally "in red and black". While this can be interpreted many ways, this 17 minute work by renowned "Third Stream" composer David Baker explores both "red-hot" and "black" influences in three jazz-steeped movements: swing, jazz waltz, and bebop. The flutist doubles on alto flute and the piano part includes the entire solo line. While the bass part is fully notated, the drums are written jazz chart style. Available for sale for the first time in 2012.
