"Written in July and August 2008, TOOTLE TOUR was composed especially for
Jonathan Warburton, upon his request.

The inspiration for the music itself began with an email exchange and further
developed in the course of a phone call between the composer and Mr.
Warburton. In the email, the British trombonist closed the note with 'toodles
pipus,' his own variation on the standard. The American composer thought,
'What in the world is that?!' but he liked the oddness of it and when Mr.
Warburton next called him, the composer answered the phone, 'Toodles Pipus?'
(as if that were Mr. Warburton's name). Without missing a beat, Mr. Warburton
replied, 'Yes.' And the conversation and madness went on from there—at
incredible speed!

In the course of the call, Mr. Warburton asked the composer to write something
'short and snappy.' The composer then asked the trombonist many questions
and the ensuing process further inspired the music that followed, an encore-type
piece moving at the speed and with the many rapid changes that characterized
the phone call he and Mr. Warburton enjoyed....

Technical Note

The piece has several styles and moods that occur over a very short period of
time. These include swing, contemporary, mysterioso, religioso, quick almost
etude-interval workouts, some extreme pedal range, humor and overall flash, all
moods and playing abilities expressed in the course of the phone conversation
between the composer and Mr. Warburton...."
