I Remember Monkey Train Track Shoes (excerpt)

Rob Collier
mixed ensemble
studio recording, July 2007
"I Remember Monkey Train Track Shoes" is from a song cycle called Our Man Jenga which I wrote in the summer of 2007. It tells the story of Bob Jenga, the fictional creator of the non-fictional "edge-of-your-seat-fun" game Jenga, who is obsessed with precision crafted blocks of wood. All of the music is written for the same ensemble consisting of alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, violin, cello, electric guitar, electric bass, drum set, and female voice. The work lasts approximately one hour with no breaks in the music.
