A substantial Suite for 4 concert flutes in 4 movements lasting about 14 minutes. Each part is 16 pages long with a 20 page score. Comes in a designer folder. Commissioned by the Monokrome Flute Quartet (California), it was premierred at the NFA convention in Nashville on 15th August 2004 where it was received with great acclaim. A lively, atmospheric and hard hitting quartet (suiting a mature or aspiring ensemble) in 4 movements, "1. Whirlpool", "2. Drought", "3.Home Side", "4.Flat Out"

As a contrast, Home Side depicts nothing more than a boorish crowd of football supporters cheering their team on to defeat and then collapsing into bed in a drunken stupor. Flat Out is just that, a headlong sprint to the finishing line using the underlying vehicle of a blues to burst through the jazz speckled finishing tape...
