Windows On The World Part 1: Windows On The World
Windows On The World is a 5-part suite about the 9/11 World Trade Center attack. The title refers to both the restaurant on top of one of the towers and our view of world politics.
WW1: Windows On The World is a classy blues that describes the grandeur and New York sophistication of the twin towers. The twin New York musical giants (George Gershwin and Duke Ellington) are invoked. Solos by trumpet, tenor and alto sax with a few short comments from the bass are subordinate to the ensemble which has the other tenor doubling on clarinet lead. There is some high plunger trombone and a C# in the first trumpet. - David Berger
Style: Slow Swing
Solos: Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Piano, Bass
