Matt Mower's Favorite tracks on alonetone

Blue Lines

Uploaded .

This work is dedicated to Andy Jaffe, jazz composer, pianist, arranger and teacher. I studied with Andy at Williams College from 1988 to 1992, and his approach to music-making and teaching has influenced everything all my work since. He once related to our class how he had bet a friend that he could write an entire bigband chart on his morning commute into Boston. Those who know Andy will not be surprised that he succeeded. The work was entitled ‘Greenlines,’ after his T line. In that spirit, ‘Blue Lines’ was composed and typeset during my morning commutes on the Blue line from Northern Virginia to Washington DC over the course of one week in early October, 2007. The work was premiered by counter)induction at the Canandaigua Lake Chamber Music Festival, Canandaigua, NY (15 November, 2007).
