New Recording -- Rainy Afternoon

Posted by Roger Aldridge on Tuesday, May 24, 2011

One of the new recordings I posted is Rainy Afternoon.  This tune goes back to an earlier version that I wrote in 1989.  It was originally called Potomac Reflections.  I spent several weeks last year going through a big stack of my old music and this tune caught my eye.  I had forgotten about it and It gathered dust for 22 years!  I made several changes to the tune and renamed it Rainy Afternoon.  As I remember, it was raining that day.

This recording of Rainy Afternoon came as a surprise to me in how the group plays it a bit faster than a ballad tempo.  I am extremely happy with their version.  It has a Hot Club of France feeling.     

Please give it a listen.   The tune has received some great feedback from several jazz & swing violinists I know.

For those who would like to work with this tune, a copy of the sheet music is available on my page at the American Music Center.  My homepage has a link.
