Jolly Blue

Description

From the composer, Nigel Wood:

Jolly Blue is an unaccompanied piece commissioned by Chris Jolly for tenor saxophone in 2021. I wrote it during lockdown at a time when gloom was beginning to give way to cautious optimism, hence the subtitle 'The end of lockdown is nigh….' Although circular breathing is a feature and preferable, it can also be played with regular breaths. This commission is part of a collaborative project between Chris and other composers. In Chris' words: "My latest solo project is my biggest yet. I have commissioned composers that have had a huge influence on my career to date and shaped me into the musician I am. I am delighted to be working with Nigel Wood, Richard Ingham, Charlotte Harding and Paul Harris on this project who are all writing new solo tenor music for me to record and release on an album in early 2022”.
