fictionspired, vol. 2

Welcome to the second installment of fictionspired, a thematic series of sound compositions inspired by art, literature or film. This week, I bring a musical adaptation of The Little Engine That Could.

In “Peculiar Child Goes On To Greatness”, we have a young banjo player busking the city streets. Initially, he’s dismissed, even ridiculed, but he perseveres and people gradually take positive notice. He garners a following, attracting the attention of local jazz musicians; they invite him to perform with them. After honing his craft, he graduates to an upright bass. “Jazz Pub Warm-up” is the postlude of him rehearsing with the same ensemble.

Titles provide direct links if the embedded player isn’t displayed.
