Fiona's Comments

Hard and driving? The fugue is bright and formal and the jazz is a light, bubbling variety that siphons in the happy at the 40s mark.

About the Album

The most recognizable movement from "Toot Suite". Theme Song for Diane Rehm’s long running show on NPR. Opens with fugue between trumpet and piano and launches into hard driving, jazz waltz.
