echoland for solo guitar by dan cosley

Echoland is a lengthy solo piece for classical guitar that explores the blues by the refraction of cliches through a prism of modern compositional techniques. The result is something like a “Cubist” blues; typical patterns are analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form.

Echoland    $15    (PDF, 6 page score.)    Listen on YouTube


duke ellington for guitar trio

Incorporating textural & harmonic devices from numerous recorded versions throughout Duke’s career, these arrangements vacillate between a traditional jazz vibe & austere contrapuntal episodes that conjure Bartók.
