Opus 9, Composed Spring 2006. This isn’t my best work, I’m afraid. But, it’s sort of interesting to me in that I woke up one morning with this melody (the A theme) in my head. I’m often hesitant to write things like that down, as I’m afraid I’m unconsciously plagiarizing someone else’s work. But, I really can’t recall any very similar tunes, so perhaps I was simply composing in my sleep. I added the rest of the tune later, this time seeming to channel a little of Gershwin’s spirit. In all, it’s a rather light effort, not intended as anything more than a light, short breeze across the keys. Oddly, I play this tune quite frequently. I hadn’t expected it to grow on me like it has.
