Every summer I spent most of my vacation time at my hometown, at the East Coast of Cyprus. I swim and dive there almost every day. When I jump into these blue-green, crystal clear waters I just feel great!
This piece was originally written for the Blues project of the pianist Marcel Worms, for Solo Piano. For this project we had to write a short piece using the ‘Blues Element’. Every composer could interpret this freely, since ‘Blues’ could be a specific type of rhythm and form, or just a feeling.
I arranged it afterwards for Saxophone Quartet, because I like the ensemble’s unique sound, which is ideal for rhythmical and swing-like music.
