For John Swallow
"During the 1998-1999 orchestral season, the composer took a sabbatical from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, accepting a position as trombone professor at the University of South Florida in Tampa during that period. At the time, John Swallow, whom the composer studied with while a student at the New England Conservatory in Boston, was in the area visiting family. This made for a happy coincidence of events, including the creation of the two unaccompanied solos, HAPPY 75TH, JOHN! and AFTER A CALL, the two works which make up the collection SWALLOWS.... LISTEN to an MP3 sample of the premiere recording on "Occurrences" (CD-72890),
HAPPY 75TH, JOHN! expresses reflection, flexibility, agility, fluidity, child-like qualities and freedom....
AFTER A CALL needs to be approached as a dialogue between two people..."
