african funk for felix (2005) jazz piano/combo, SR087

Composer: Surendran Reddy
Work title: african funk for felix
Instrumentation: jazz piano/combo
Score: piano score
Work No.: SR087
Composition date: 2005


The work was written as a jazz trio with a virtuoso piano part and occasional indications for bass and drums, although it can be played as a solo. It has lots of scope for improvisation and embodies Reddy's principles of 'clazz’, a crossover between classical music and jazz. It also has a uniquely South African flavour because of its two ‘mbaqanga’ sections.
