Fish are Jumping

Dick, R

"'Summer time.... and the living is easy.... Fish are jumping.....and the cotton is high...' The title for this piece comes from the haunting lullaby Bess sings in Gershwin’s opera, Porgy and Bess. Just as Gershwin combined more than one musical style in his works, Robert Dick does the same with this piece. Fish Are Jumping features styles such as jazz, rock and roll, and blues, with an ending that is mostly improvised by the performer after the manner of jazz improv. Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the flute, Robert Dick literally wrote the book (called The Other Flute) on using extended techniques in flute playing, creating new sounds for the instrument and standardizing a way to notate these in written music. He is a musical jack of all trades, who has revolutionized flute playing and the flute itself, working with the Brannen flute company to invent a new style of headjoint. Interested in fusing all sorts of American musical styles together in his compositions, he is the United State’s foremost flutist-composer, and one of the most talented musicians and composers in the world today." - Elisabeth La Foret, 2007<
