Great new Sax/Piano piece!

Last night I performed Michael Djustrom's "Walamia" at the Composer's Inc. concert in San Francisco with the wonderful pianist, Irene Gregorio. If you're a saxophonist with lots of chops (altissimo, technique and great rhythm required!) I can't recommend this great piece enough. It is very aleatoric and definitely has influences from John Anthony Lennon's "Distances Within Me" for alto saxophone and piano, if you're familiar with that piece.

The composer was at the performance and is a great person with a definite sense of what he wants. I predict great things for Michael Djupstrom!
