ST. PAUL’S BLUES is inspired by early jazz and blues traditions, yet with a fresh twist. This 5-minute recital work begins with a slow, dark melody full of vocal-styled nuances, leading to variations and embellishments with the freedom afforded by unaccompanied instrumental solos. ST. PAUL’S BLUES was commissioned by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra for flutist Alicia McQuerrey to premiere on the SPCO’s website during the 2020-21 pandemic season. Ms. McQuerrey's performance is available at
