Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear an original post bop jazz piece recorded at Harriet O’Neal’s piano studio.

Regular listeners know that I’m a composition major at ASU. There’s more to being a composition major than putting notes on a page. You are also expected to arrange readings of your pieces, make recordings, and perform recitals.

I wrote a piece called “Chunga”, a prequel to Frank Zappa’s “Chunga’s Revenge”. Harriet O’Neal was my piano teacher and she agreed to help play a reading and make a recording of the piece. Harriet was raised in Wynne, Arkansas, and she taught at ASU.

I pulled some top area musicians to fill out the rhythm section. On bass I had David Eckert, librarian at the Jonesboro Public Library who gave lessons at ASU and on drums, John Long, band director at Walnut Ridge.

For the saxophone parts I had two excellent musicians who I had played with in the jazz program at ASU, Aaron Decker – alto, and Cody Ballard – tenor. The bari player I had scheduled was out of town so I played the bari parts on my synthesizer.
