One Time Eye Saw a Rainbow

lyrics

This tune dates back to the early nineties and is one of the first tunes I wrote that sorta hangs together well. The music was written during a period when I was under the influence of a lot of music by Kenny Wheeler. I tried to emulate his use of melody and countermelody and also referenced some harmonic sequences that could also be linked to Kenny's music. For the arrangement I put together some backgrounds for the solo section and took things out with some material that is a bit like a shout chorus you may hear in a big band.
