Alien Loop de Loops sax coverALIEN LOOP DE LOOPS for sax (Bb soprano or tenor) and electronic recording by Howard J. Buss is a playful fantasy piece designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences. The title refers to both programmatic and technical elements in the work. The composer envisioned a performer outside in an open area during an air show by an alien craft. During the opening section he/she plays alone, but then is joined by the recording, which contains sounds generated by traditional instruments as well as an "alien" voice, the spacecraft, and various electronic effects. Technically, the title refers to how the recording was made. It consists of numerous sound loops combined to form an imaginative and picturesque sonic tapestry. The publication includes sheet music and a CD (attached to the inside of the back cover) that contains a performance track and the accompaniment track. (6’47”) Grade V.

BLACK NOTES (1987) for alto sax & piano by Zack Browning was written for Joe Lulloff and inspired by jazz saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s composition Blacknuss. In the introduction to Blacknuss Kirk states "there are 52 white notes and 36 black notes on the piano. We're going to play the black notes only, if you don't mind." The opposition suggested between black and white notes is expanded to include static and dynamic elements, consonant and dissonant harmonies, and pattered and non-patterned events. The title also refers to the middle section's exclusive use of the black notes of the piano. Vigorous swing rhythms contrast with sections of haunting beauty.  (5’40”) Grade V.

IMPROMPTU (1994) for clarinet (or soprano sax) and marimba by Howard J. Buss is characterized by driving rhythms and ornate melodic lines. The opening motives in both parts undergo almost continuous development throughout, often giving the work a spontaneous, improvisatory feel. At times the music has a playful, almost frolicking quality. At other times mysterious and introspective passages contrast with intense sections to create an atmosphere of moodiness. The lyrical melodies and interesting timbral contrasts between the instruments combine with the tonal scheme of the music to make a sophisticated, yet audience-friendly, concert work. Two-mallet technique is prominent in the marimba part during the more intricate solo passages and there is some use of 3 and 4 mallets in those sections where chordal writing occurs. “A very accessible and enjoyable work.” - Percussive Notes. (6’) Grade V.

NOVELLA (1991) for alto sax & piano by Howard J. Buss was written for Ken Fischer.

SEEKING ITHACA (2007) for alto sax & piano by Anne M.. Guzzo was inspired by the adventures of Odysseus in Homer's Odyssey. It is in 2 movements, Calypso's Gift and Adventure. In the first, Odysseus is stranded on the Calypso's island, where he becomes enchanted by the beautiful goddess. Calypso is in love with Odysseus, but she makes the decision to let him continue his adventures and find his family again. Musically, the mournful yet proud opening sax melody employs both traditional sounds and extended techniques such as key pops and air-tones. This melody, in one form or another, becomes the basis for most of the composition, which is harmonically fleshed out by extended chords in the piano part. A slower second half, marked "Distantly, sadly," recalls motives from the opening section, and creates a sense of loss, signified by the sax's pitchless air-tone at the conclusion. The second movement, Adventures, is inspired by Odysseus' encounter with the Cyclops. (12')  Grade V-VI.

THREE JAZZICALS (2009) for Bb soprano sax & tuba by Howard J. Buss is in 3 movements - To Bop or Not to Bop, Sounds from the Cool Smoke, and Hotish. The composer states, “ In Three Jazzicals it was not my aim to create a specific hybrid style by synthesizing jazz and modern classical music; rather, my intent was to systematically strip away the fundamental elements of jazz to explore at what point the music ceases being jazz and becomes classical. The style is the resultant this procedure. It is understood that because the subject of what constitutes jazz (there are so many kinds) is so complex, depending upon the background and views of the listener, this work will sound jazzy (in varying degrees) to most, and mostly classical to some.” The instruments employed have been traditionally used in jazz. However, stripped away is the rhythm section; traditional chord progressions; melodic, rhythmic and formal clichés; and improvisation. Among the elements kept is the allowance for personal expression through each player’s tone, inflections, and articulations. (12’)

A SUFFUSION OF BLUE (1996) for sax quartet (soprano, alto, tenor & baritone) by Lee Heritage. The 4 independent voices of the quartet weave together simple rhythmic gestures and lilting melodies in a tapestry of contrapuntal lines in this work. This playful mood gives way momentarily to a more relaxed singing style, but the optimistic energy of the opening quickly resurfaces. The four instruments dance again in a crescendo of counterpoint, converging at the last moment in a richly harmonized, chorale-like statement of the original melody. (7’30”) Grade IV-V.

This is followed by a more traditional rendering of the spiritual; however, as the music reaches its climax, the jazz "licks" from the introduction are brought back as counterpoint against the main melody of the spiritual.

COSMIC PORTRAITS (2009) for flute, clarinet, alto sax & tenor sax by Howard J. Buss consists of three movements inspired by views of objects in the Milky Way galaxy. The titles of the first 2 movements, The Backbone of Night and The Pale Blue Dot are taken from the writings of the renowned astrophysicist, Carl Sagan. In his book, Cosmos, he describes how the !Kung Bushman in Botswana refer to the Milky Way as “the backbone of night.” The spine of the Milky Way often appears directly over the Kalahari Desert. The !Kung believe it to be the structural foundation of the heavens and that one of its functions in relation to Earth, among many, is that it holds up the darkness.In his book, The Pale Blue Dot, Sagan poetically describes a haunting view of Earth from a distant point in our galaxy. He puts our worldly concerns into cosmic perspective when he refers to all that has ever happened to human beings as occurring “on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” The final movement, Orbitals, suggests celestial bodies revolving around one another in a fascinating cosmic dance. Moons orbiting planets, planets around suns, suns around other suns culminate in the swirling wonder of our galaxy. (18’10”) Grade V.

ESCAPADE (1991) for alto sax and 4 percussion by Howard J. Buss explores a sequence of emotional states which develop over a talea, a fixed pattern of time values. Except during the extended sax cadenza, this repeating rhythmic pattern can be heard throughout the work in varying degrees of intensity. At times it is forcibly presented by the musicians moving in rhythmic unison. On other occasions the talea is fragmented and distributed among the players. Frequently this rhythmic pattern is embedded in the presentation of melodic material similar to the technique of isorhythm as it was employed by 14th-century masters such as Machaut and de Vitry. The continuous variation of the unifying talea coupled with the work’s intriguing melodies and exotic timbral contrasts, make this an accessible concert work. Percussion distribution: Percussion 1: Timpani (4), temple blocks, snare drum, and 2 suspended cymbals; Percussion 2: Orchestra bells, xylophone, maracas, triangle, 2 cow bells, suspended cymbal, and chime tree; Percussion 3: Vibes, tam-tam, roto toms, and claves; Percussion 4: Marimba, guiro, and 2 suspended cymbals. “By far the night’s most memorable piece.” - The Los Angeles Times.

IN DARKNESS (1989) for high voice (soprano or tenor), alto sax & piano by Roger C. Vogel. In Sophocle’s tragedy Oidipous Tyrannos the protagonist was separated from his parents at birth. He unwittingly fulfilled a prophesy by killing his father in a quarrel and then marrying his mother when he became king of Thebes. In Darkness is a narrative of the events that took place after the incestuous marriage became known. Although the melodic and harmonic language of this work is modern, it incorporates some of the flavor of the ancient Grecian melody by deriving important motivic material from the ancient Dorian scale as it was sung in the chromatic genus. Recorded on the OASIS CD Love Letters, available from Brixton Publications CD-109. This powerful, engaging work makes a memorable concert feature. (16’30”) Grade V.

As the work draws to a close, the wind and waves still, lulling the final saxophone melody into blissful sleep.

On the Wing coverON THE WING for violin, alto saxophone and piano by Roger C. Vogel was written in 2013 and revised in 2017 for Rachel and Stephen Fischer. It was inspired by the thrill of flight, as well as that of being in motion, traveling, and being active. The intense energy of taking off, soaring, gliding, and diving is depicted in its musical gestures. The opening begins with ascending motives and progresses through contrasting sections that represent different aspects and emotions that are experienced in flight. As the work progresses these motives recur in various ways, with some surprises, until the final exhilarating coda. Cast in one movement of about 15 minutes in length, the violin, alto saxophone, and piano compete, complement, intertwine, and reflect on the musical ideas equally.(15’) Grade V.

Tribute to Kerouac is my musical response to, and commemoration of, this important American writer who liked to describe himself as a 'jazz.poet.'" This work is recorded on Ongaku Records CD#024-112.
