From the composer: In my late teens I played in a pop group around Northern Ireland and wrote a piece called P.R. Girl. Although it had cringeworthy lyrics (which I’m pleased to say will never be heard again), it did have a pretty catchy tune which inspired my first experiment in arranging for Saxtet.  As the group’s bari player, I was frustrated with the plodding lines I usually got to play and so decided to arrange it as a baritone feature with a thumping part requiring an extra lung. The challenging changes of time signature can catch out unwary players as well as audience if they try to dance along. It became a regular item in Saxet’s repertoire and appears on the Safer Sax album, so this is one experiment that really took off!

    PR Girl … is a zany conversation of rhythmically interacting lines, rather like a conversation between five people all speaking simultaneously. This is one of my favourites in the series.
