Description

Composer's note:

After viewing the film 'Pacific Heights' while touring the West Coast in the USA with the group Saxtet, I wrote Pacific Nights. The piece is also a tribute to the group, whose encouragement and suggestions inspired me as I worked up the initial idea into its final form.

It started as a 'sketch' with a simple riff on baritone saxophone - my instrument at the time - giving me a rare spot in the limelight. This was followed by a melodic line, which develops into a rapid quaver passage and virtual chaos, before the emphatic final statement of the opening theme.

Pacific Nights is the only piece I have ever written, although I am planning to write another quartet within the next 15 years!
