This is one of the first tunes I ever wrote. At the time I was living and studying in Mannheim. It has come with me to The Hague and I have played it with different fellow musicians from both places. It’s about the notion that important things and changes always happen when their time has come.

A song from a Broadway musical written by Kurt Weill. The title refers to a metaphor that compares a man’s lifetime to the months of a year: “Oh it’s a long, long time from May to December, but the days grow short when you reach September”. I like the melancholic and festive mood of the song and arranged it for four horns and a rhythm section.

In 1966, the Duke Ellington Orchestra recorded the extraordinary „Far East Suite“ (written by Ellington and Strayhorn). Isfahan (inspired by the Persian city) featured soloist Johnny Hodges on alto. The piece is mystic, exotic and very pretty at the same time. Hodges is an eternal idol of sound and interpretation.

My second arrangement for the larger ensemble, emphasizing the combination of baritone saxophone and clarinet. In order to reminisce the old school jazz bands from back in the days, I picked the old standard “All of Me” and replaced the melody with Another Line.

I heard a recording of this beautiful ballad sung by Ella Fitzgerald some years ago, and it’s been stuck in my head ever since.
