Busy Lizzy (Rob Catlender)

I based this composition on the chord structure of Gershwin's 'I got rhythm'. Lot of jazz-composition are based on these so-called 'rhythm changes'.

I used large leaps in as well melody as in dynamics. Octaves and sevenths and jumps from ff to mp.

I wrote it for my daughter Annelies when she was 8 years old.

A digital big band with computer-sampled sounds gives an impression of the piece.
