An alto saxophone soloing over the rhythm section, with the piano throwing in a little counter melody or even sharing the spot light with a solo or two. However, as soon as the second song begins I realized that there is a lot more to Joshua Redman than the "typical" jazz song. "One shining Soul" gives out a much more laid back feel to it. The Saxophone and guitar share the melody for much of the song giving me flash backs to the dentist office or an elevator. The group then picks up the pace with "Streams Of Consciousness" which features a much more up beat feel, making me want to tap my foot.
Throughout the piece ,Steijin played simultaneously by tapping the edge of the cymbal and maintaining the tempo even though there were a few pauses and variations. Towards the end of the piece, the continuous trembling sound of the cymbals reminded me of me finishing a worship song at my own church. The section where I heard a Latin form was when a form was introduced. The saxophone played a spontanouesly melody by playing through a and a form while the low pitches of the double bass , the tapping of the
Early into his solo, he showcases his ability to go from low to high octaves with no struggle. During his solo, he has an accompaniment by the drummer and the pianist. Davis takes his time on his solo, smooth and short with his lines. A sudden conclusion to Miles’s solo beings Coltrane’s saxophone solo. Playing with a heavy articulation, quick with his notes, at times it sounds a bit static.
The theme begins with the melody in the form of legato. The statement picks up with four voices now still in harmony, but in a homophonic style because of the piano that joins in. With the piano still playing the voices are accompaning it by holding out one word and note. Three of the voices drop out and become the background accompaniment for the lead voice, by singing in unsion and holding out one note. Then the back up voices imitate part of the phrase from the lead that continues to sing the melody.
The strings and woodwind play the syncopated, rhythmic fight theme. Again, the strings and woodwind play in antiphony, and also imitation. The cymbals crash, representing the clashing of the swords, and the strings play ascending and descending scales. The theme is then repeated by the full orchestra with cymbals and timpani, climaxing with a perfect cadence. The woodwind section then plays a legato melody that gradually uses rallentando and diminuendo.
His opening solo is repetitive, going over the same set of notes over and over again. The overall feeling is as if the music is wooing the listener. Ellington's other innovations include the use of the human voice as an instrument, such as in "Creole Love Call" (1927). He also placed instruments in unusual combinations, illustrated in the piece "Mood Indigo" (1930). When the orchestra performs this piece, three soloists stand out in front of the stage, playing three different instruments.
He inhaled gently and sat down, hovering his long, slender fingers over the keys in anticipation. He waited awhile, closing his eyes calmly, and then began to play. Immediately, an easeful warmth spread through his cool body, as the familiar tone of Chopin’s Waltz Op. 64 in C# minor echoed throughout the hall. His fingers danced across the gleaming keys, gracefully executing the light melody, and as he began a series of fluid crescendos, he became fully engrossed in his own world, shrouding himself in the delicate notes of the piano.
The final segue jam flowed into a period tempo dropping where an abrupt stop came, Bob Weir signaled, and started the "Promised Land". Of course being Bob Weir especially, no one is perfect, and when he flubbed a few of the lyrics, the crowd cheered in his obvious acknoledgement of his mistake. However, his courageous vocals over shadowed the usual embarrassment for a musician when forgetting lyrics. "Candy Man" was a beautiful rendition, which is when John Kadleciks singing shines through the best. "Playin In The Band" rose above the previous jams played, with all around meritable playing.
This fast paced Latin grove is accompanied by full brass melodies. Quickly a soft transition to a lyrical flute solo comes out of nowhere. The movement then ends with a klezmer jazz and flute run. The dramatic differences between the melodies in the final movement highlight the harmony that exists between the different genres of classical and jazz repertoire. Overall the Wind Symphony Concert displayed a wide arranged of styles and emotion that extremely well executive by the ensemble.
There is a band up on stage that is playing a fast tempo song. They are playing with a guitar, piano, harmonica, and other exotic looking instruments, like a bottle that the band member blows into. The men at the saloon are dancing, drinking, playing checkers, and seem to be having a good time. Then Gene and Frog leave the saloon and go to the dam. In the beginning of the scene, a fast pace song that is played with trumpets starts to play, which made me think that the scene would have a lot of action in it.
