For Piano (lead sheet)
Opus 17, "Jazz Pieces" catalogues pieces I wrote while studying jazz piano under Mary Giacobbe. While most exist only as lead sheets, a few are written out in full notation. I recognise the strangeness of providing a cover for a lead sheet but, not having nearly enough to publish my own fake book, I'm not quite sure how else to publish them - and there is something to be said for consistency!
"Just Around the Corner" is my second lead sheet, written on November 30, 2008. The head is quite a bit longer than "Dawntime",
and much more harmonically complex. It was used as the basis for the second movement of the "Triple Concerto for Taylor
Thompson" (Op. 36).
