CROWS IN TUXEDOS is a finger popping swinger featuring interwoven contrapuntal lines and some hot trombone section work. Like many jazz standards, the harmonies of this work are based on the chords to Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm, although with a twist. The title refers to the magpies I saw as I strolled the paths near Christiania. I’m not sure, but I think they were laughing at me.

Solos for guitar, piano, bass, flute (on alto 1) and trumpet.

As recorded by the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra on the CD “Progressive Jazz 2009.”
