Ornettish (2002)

Leadsheet. Up-tempo, odd-metered swing tune, sounds a bit like Ornette Coleman or/and Thelonius Monk, but the real starting point for the compositions, was me trying to reconstruct how some of my third-grade pupils played their cornets after I told them about free jazz. Premiered by the Gunhild Seim Trio in Stavanger Concert Hall 2002.
