Homage to Keith Jarrett and Gary Burton
Publisher: Boosey and Hawkes
Instrumentation: Flute and Vibraphone
This modern work includes modern rhythmic notation and key slaps.
“HOMAGE…” is based on a 30-second improvisation of a tune entitled Grow Your Own (an early song of Jarrett) which I literally stole from the record. Having this skeletal outline, I then worked my maeterial around that of Jarrett's, creating a potpourri of Jarrett, Kolb and reminiscences of my past. The music should not be taken too serously, but should be appreciated for its directness and immediate appeal. – Barbara Kolb
