Water Song


Lead sheet in concert key. Four pgs incl. cover

Water Song is one of my oldest tunes; it had a previous outing on a recording by Arn Evans and Tradewinds in 1980. When I wrote it in 1978 the melody struck me as something I had been carrying around a very long time, maybe since boyhood, long known, well-loved. But then, shaping the melody with harmony into a form—that was hard! It came to be something like ‘Chick Corea meets Franz Schubert’—perhaps with apologies to both.
