Program note.

The work, as indicated by the title, is in seven parts. Formally, the first, third, and last - respectively, the Prelude, Interlude, and Postlude ... all of which are quiet and meditative in mood - are like pillars that hold the whole work together, into place. The inner sections consist of pieces inspired by and in homage to four influential and important jazz artists - a Be-bop theme in the style of Horace Silver, a jazz waltz à la Bill Evans, a bossa nova Antonio Carlos Jobim could've written, and a variation of a Jaco Pastorius punk-funk groove.

 The whole structure looks like this:
 I. Prelude: Meditative
II. Post-bop: To Horace Silver
III. Interlude: Chorale
IV. Jazz Waltz: To Bill Evans
V. Bossa Nova: To Antonio Carlos Jobim
VI. Punk funk: To Jaco ...
VII. Postlude: Prayer
