Asia Minor

Sly on Life CD imageAsia Minor (Lynn Emberg Purse©1978, 2002) was written in 1978 but arranged for Duquesne University’s Catch 22’s CD “Sly on Life.”

“The composing is strong on this album but the fourth cut is the most striking composition. Titled “Asia Minor” and authored by [Lynn Purse], this piece employs a haunting, melancholy melody. Evoking a dreamy, ethereal mood, this tune readily offers Catch 22 the opportunity to show their textural side, and employs a beautiful, bowed bass line by Jeff Mangone that provides a wonderful counter melody to the main theme.” Just Jazz Guitar, February 2004
