The New Math

Filed under: jazz, 5/4 time

With a great debt to Dave Brubeck, I wrote this starting with a simple jam between bass and drums. The addition of piano came naturally, and the trio was in place. I especially like the bass solo in the middle. I would like to rework the drums and maybe record myself playing them, it might have a more natural feel and flow. I would also love to add a soprano sax in there on the melody, but I do enjoy the simplicity of the trio alone...besides, the piano can carry it just fine on its own.
