Rondos, riffs, refrains, clasical form, jazz idioms and vocal concepts in one piece?  By using consistent melodic, harmonic and rhythmic ideas while contrasting and blending these and other styles, American composer Norman Nelson creates an unified whole with intriguing twists and turns in the flow of musical ideas.  The piece was composed for a former music theory student of his, flute virtuoso Bradley Gardner.
