Jamdalf the Cray (2016)

for bassoon quartet (3 bassoon, one contrabassoon).  dur: 3'

Program Notes: "Jamdalf the Cray" is not to be mistaken for "Gandalf the Gray."  Gandalf the Gray is a wise and powerful wizard in J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Jamdalf the Cray, on the other hand, is an ordinary man with an extraordinary ability to jam.  He can make any and every situation "cray."  And if you ever find yourself wondering where the funk went, ask Jamdalf.  He knows where it is.
