Epitaph is a reflective modern composition dedicated to a remarkable young musician who sadly left us too soon. The simple expressive melody is contrasted with a dense pan-diatonic harmonic pallet. While the technical demands are not extreme, this piece offers many challenges in terms of blend and rhythmic complexity. In addition to a strong tenor saxophone soloist with good harmonic knowledge, the rhythm section must be confident and sensitive to the soloist throughout.
