While yesterday I resolved to compose the remaining few Chorales more in Bach’s style, today I decided instead to embrace my jazz roots – part of the advantage of being my own boss for this project!
I’ve wanted to compose a Chorale like this since day one, but was hesitant for risk of this turning into a “Jazz Chorale” project. There’s an enigma around being a jazz-classical/third-stream/chamber-jazz musician that I haven’t yet figured out how to position. For the time being I’m just making as much music as I can and getting it out there.
So listen and please tell me what you think of this direction, maybe I’m on to something here. Maybe not.
