Michel Dalle Ave
Les Productions D’Oz: 4 pages
This little piece is in swing style, and therefore the straight quavers are to be treated like a triplet of quavers throughout its slight 55 bars.
It is quite speedy at 138 crotchets a minute and is in G minor. The chords from the opening are very jazz-swing in style and as a result there are a multitude of accidentals all over the piece. There are a number of slides throughout, where the chord you pluck has to be lowered via a glissando one fret down.
As for the music itself, it is pleasant enough but, to be honest, left me a little lacking as I didn’t really consider it very memorable from the outset. It’s reasonably complex enough for it to be considered quite difficult technically and there are lots of chords in it, but to be fair, very little real melody.
You might love it, and I normally do like this style of writing, but this particular piece didn’t cut it for me, but you could absolutely adore it. Not for me
