Blues and Spirituals - Score by Poletzky. For AAT recorders and guitar. Recorder with Guitar. 3 - Moderate. Score. Published by Moeck Verlag (MM.MK00256). Like the terms chorale and foxtrot, the expressions blues and spirituals are familiar to everyone and would actually need no explanation were it not for the fact that we are calling upon recorders - among all instruments - to concern themselves with a type of music with which they are normally considered to have nothing in common. We know the recorder as an early baroque instrument, which awoke from a period of complete oblivion, like the Sleeping Beauty from her spell, to become, within a short time, absolutely universal. Its rebirth has also meant a new life for the music which is so typical of it. CONTENTS: Blues: Im Tired, Im Blue Today, Go way From My Window, Two-Nineteen Blues Spirituals: They Crucified my Lord, Amazing Grace.

Blues in Retrospect - performance score by Andrew Charlton. For SAAT Recorders. Recorder Quartets. Performance Score. Published by Anfor Editions (MM.RCE0019). Music with a jazz flavor being a highly specialized sort of style with a very special sort of interpretation, has always been difficult to notate. Experienced jazz players know almost instinctively just how to play a line in order to make it "swing". Too often performers without the background in playing this kind of music manage to make a piece sound stiff and stilted and much of the charm of what is one of America's main contributions to the world's music is lost. If the rhythms and syncopations in this piece are played as they are written without consciously trying to force them but rather holding back, it should not be difficult to achieve the correct musical results. - Andrew Charlton.
