Description: A short Big Band poem for female vocalist with Swedish lyrics by Daniel Eng. This slightly atonal piece starts with quiet clusters and a short theme in the lower register. A soprano sax solo ensues, that ends in a halting and a slower, conducted passage which presents the lyrics. After that, the original tempo comes back for a harmon muted trumpet solo, that ultimately ends the piece. The brass is muted throughout and the guitar has some special effects and harmonics to play.
