James Rae has composed six original pieces for Alto or Teno Saxophone in an attempt to portray the sound of traditional Irish music. As he states, "the saxophone is an instrument capable of great agility as well as expressive melodic playing and is this ideally suited for such a collection." Parts are included in both Eb and Bb instruments. Titles are: A Drop O' the Hard Stuff; One Cold, Grey Morning; Harry's Empty Glass; Beyond the Headland; Kieran in the Kitchen; His Father's Son. ©2001.
