Tubist Jim Shearer begin working on a tuba transcription of the famous Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio in 1983. This recording is the final result. When composer and pianist Chris Reyman signed on to do the project in 2021, he asked if he could also compose a companion seven-movement suite, which became the music featured on the second disc, titled Cloud Bowling.
The work explores a wide variety of jazz styles and offers improvisation space for both the solo tubist and all members of the jazz trio. A published version of the work will be released soon by Potenza Music.
