From the Publisher
A commission from the Wozniak Duo (Lois Hicks-Wozniak, saxophone, and Matthew Wozniak, bass trombone) led the composer to fashion a two-movement synthesis of this dynamic couple. The movements ("Lyrical Lois" and "Chopper's Rag") are contrasting elements, as reflects the contrasting instruments, The first begins "with sweet serenity," before giving way to a passage "in the groove," with rythmic foot stomps. The second ("Mean!") starts with attitude, then solidity ("Kinda square").
Please note that the video is the original version for alto sax and bass trombone.
