The Sax Pistols is an outstanding young saxophone quartet in Norhthamptonshire, England. I believe their members are in the 16-19 year-old range. And, boy can they play, and with style and depth.
Anyhoo, they were kind and generous enough to commission a new work from me. If you're interested, here's a preview, hot off the presses.
A bit about the piece: it's kind of an Irish Reel (dance), in flavor and form. And it's kind of not. It has been planned as one movement of a forthcoming suite entitled Folkdance. Two more movements exist in rough sketches, but I'm not quite sure when they will be completed. [Of course, if someone wants to commission their completion, it might happen sooner... :-) ]
I've got a Finale mp3 which, incidentally, completely disregards the oh-so-importand accelerando at about the 3:30 mark. Oh well - you can use your imagination until the Pistols send me a human recording of one of their performances.
Oh yeah - it's a fun one!
