SQ Blue (string quartet #1)

Category: Music
Publisher: jzCDz.com
Pages: 65
Copyright: Feb 19, 2011

In 2010 I finally revised and notated my first string quartet based on one of my 1998 jazz pieces; yet the first movement has a decidedly Bartok flavor with a touch of jazzy blues overtones. The long second movement is in 3 different tempos beginning with a Celtic flavor and including two very jazz-like sections of advanced jazz harmony with bluesy overtones. Thus the name: "SQ BLUE" or String Quartet #1!

American Composer/pianist Michael Guy (b. 1954) also composes chamber and symphonic music with a jazz influence. Try his first quartet subtitled "S.Q. Blue" completed in 2010 in 2 movements with the last long movement (16') in 3 large sections. A very "jazz blues" influence and Celtic flavored music with shades of his Bartok influence in movement #1. For performing groups a score can be made available with parts at cost. Contact the composer from his Lulu storefront.

IF you are a performing quartet or know of one interested in my music, currently only self published through jzCDz.com PLEASE contact me and I can make available a FREE Demo mp3 made on my digital samples of the this music and a "Study Score" at cost. Contact Michael Guy/composer @ miguy7@yahoo.com or through my A.D. message box or I am also on Facebook.
