Prelude and Fugue in B flat major - (2011)
bright, up-tempo feeling with blue note coloration and some end-of-measure,
percussive punctuation (as at measure eight and beyond) create this lightly

fugue mirrors the prelude's blue-note references, and spans a twelfth. The
subsequent entries include a dalliance in the sub-mediant minor, as well as
some canonic treatment of portions of the subject.
