Programme Notes / Performance Details :

The first movement, Chillin, has a very relaxed feel and is loosely based on the blues scale. The marimba opens the piece with a simple single line before settling into a more accompanimental role of sustained chords. There are a few exposed moments for the marimba in a solo context, but the movement is led by the jazzy sound of the saxophone.

The second movement, Hoppin, is a quick perpetual motion study set primarily in 3/8. The marimba takes on a role more equal to the saxophone in this movement.
