Our audio excerpt starts at melody and goes through the entire A section; the B section modulates these same themes and takes them in new harmonic directions. On the recording, however, Michael begins with solo rubato piano, using the B section as an introduction. While this makes for an effective arrangement, any number of introductions could nicely set up the head—get creative and try it your own way.
born on September 4, 1948
A forward-leaning yet strongly swinging modern pianist, Cochrane studied with the noted Boston-based piano teacher Madame Margaret Chaloff (mother of Serge Chaloff) and the inimitable Jaki Byard. In a fruitful career, he has performed and/or recorded with saxophonists Michael Brecker, Sonny Fortune, Oliver Lake, David Schnitter and Chico Freeman and trumpeters Clark Terry, Valery Ponomarev, Jack Walrath and Ted Curson; also bassist Eddie Gomez, as well as many others.
