I wrote this song while I was living in Brooklyn, NY and spending quite a bit of time in Woodstock, NY. This is the closest thing to a “country music” song I have ever written. This composition was recorded by myself and bassist Eliot Wadopian on our “Mountain Song” duo CD. This piece is extremely playable at most levels!!!
This was an assignment by Jimmy Heath when I was studying for my Master’s Degree at Queens College. He asked us to write music for a text. I picked this short Langston Hughes poem and am very happy with the result.
The harmonies move through various ii-v-I cycles. A good piece from intermediate to advanced.
