Here is the second movement of my cello sonata “El CafĂ© Iridiscente” which is entitled “azul”. This piece was co-commissioned by the National Music Teachers Association and the Nebraska Music Teachers Association.

This movement has a sort of Brubeck-y feel without being in an odd meter. There are some of what Justin calls “Charlie Parker licks” toward the end. It’s just gentle fun music.

Justin Lepard is playing with me in this video at our Feb. 3 concert at St. Mark’s on the Campus.
