Joe Utterback is a contemporary american composer who has written a good deal of pipe-organ pieces in a somewhat jazzy mood.
Those four pieces come from his collection titled "Jazz-influenced voluntaries".
These are short pieces (roughly 2 pages and less than 2 minutes each one) :
- trumpet tune uses Salisbury's Gt trumpet (with the tuba, it did not work well IMHO) ;
- flute dance is a kind of lively "flotenhur" and uses hohlpipe and quintaden from St-Bavo's RW ;
- air on the oboe is a haunting melody which reminds a bit Floor Peeter's Aria. It uses Salisbury's SW oboe and Solo clarinet ;
- cornet voluntary is a cheerful piece which uses St-Omer's GO cornet.
It's a first try with this kind of music, and the playing sounds terribly stiff and clumsy. But, after all, one has to begin....:-)
