Here’s the plan. 3 minute piece, so only 3 minutes to write each blog entry…… Firstly, the title of this blog was going to be ‘What would Frank Zappa say?’, but then I changed my mind. The theme is the same though: how do non-classical musicians/composers write for classical musicians? At the moment I’m listening to A Fiddler’s Tale Suite by Wynton Marsalis. Full with New Orleans rhythmic stye, it shows a very interesting solution. Marsalis writes for non-jazz musicians, and does not include himself (its always easier to import your style when you are there to do it). Useful for me? Can’t say: 3 mins is up…..
