Trip by Chris Jolly

A few words from Chris Jolly:
TRIp was originally written in 2011 for Reed Play; a trio of alto saxophone, bass clarinet and piano. The piece was re-worked in 2012 for the World Saxophone Congress in St Andrews with the bass clarinet part altered for baritone saxophone and a new middle section added.

TRIp is based on a 2 bar groove which emerges from a driving and unstable opening which incorporates extended techniques. The contrasting middle section looses all sense of time with a repeated 13 beat melody in the alto and lilting chords from the piano. The final section sees the return of the 2 bar groove that we first heard at the beginning, this time much more settled

Purchase either from June Emerson or our website: samekmusic.com/shop/trip-chris-jolly/

Samek Music Artist, Thea King

Dame Thea King was major figure as soloist, chamber and orchestral player, She appeared at all the major festivals in Britain, and also in Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, Brazil and the USA, frequently as soloist with the English Chamber Orchestra for whom she played principal clarinet. Her solo recordings feature nineteenth-century repertoire and British music of this century (many were première recordings), including a recent issue of Britten’s posthumously-published Concerto Movement, together with concertos by Malcolm Arnold and Elizabeth Maconchy. Formerly a pupil of Thurston, she was later to become his wife until the untimely and early death of Thurston. Thea King was hugely protective of Thurston’s recordings. Victoria Soames Samek had the great privilege of working closely with Thea King following her agreement to support the release of the recordings (which were painstakingly restored and the close supervision of Soames Samek) and gave her generous permission to reproduce many letters and photographs.
