"In '77, I was playing duos with Albert Mangelsdorff, and we performed this piece quite a few times. Also, it was recorded with Garret List the same year ('United Patchwork'). Later, it worked very well with George Lewis.
Actually, it is a portrait of another great trombonist, who I played with in the early 50's: Vic Dickenson. Soprano sax and trombone have always been one of my favorite combinations (i.e. 'School Days' and 'Trickles' with Roswell Rudd).
Dewline should be played in a sensuous, insinuating manner."
