Hi again and welcome back to the Sketchbook. Today I am posting a new composition for saxophone, entitled One Step Down. This is the eigth song in this series where, over the course of a year, I am publishing a new song from my catalog, every month, for you to hear.
This piece I am releasing here is a bit unusual in that it is written as a slow blues in waltz tempo. It is perhaps one of the saddest tunes that I have written as it reaches to touch the edge of our emotion. If you can, do listen with headphones, because it will be easier to hear the different voices within the sound stage. The YouTube video includes an animated jazz dance which is derived from the classic work of Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire. To listen to this song and see the video, scroll down this page, or use the Youtube link to go to the full playlist of my songs and vlogs.
If this is your first time here, I am glad you stopped by and I invite you to listen to the tunes that I have posted here. Every month there will be something new. I hope you will join me on this journey, by going to my website and signing up for the mailing list. If you do this, I will send you a note on the day that the next new song is released
If you like what I am doing here, subscribe to this channel by clicking the subscribe button and don’t forget to click the bell so that you get the notification. My goal for this project is to connect with as many people as possible in the hopes of moving this music to the next stage, So, please share this with everyone you think might appreciate it. The site is called Sketchbook, because these compositions are first round sketches of songs that I hope to re-orchestrate, re-record and re-envision in collaboration with others. Feel free to leave feedback and if you are a music professional who would like to collaborate with recording, production or any other aspect of the process, please let me know. With that, I will let the song speak for itself. Thanks for listening and I hope you like it. Peace.
