My composition “Powerhouse” was composed in high school for a standard jazz band. The chord progression (Cm Abmaj7, Bb, Cm) and playing the same/similar melody over the different chords came from my friend Steve Lanciano.
This recording has all of the instruments sequenced using a synthesizer, expect for the “C” section and solo section where I play my alto saxophone.
