about

I’m quite pleased with this piece. It had never been played before we recorded it so I was not sure how it would sound. It is all based on phrases reducing from 7 to 1, each phrase repeated 3 times so you get 777,666,555,444,333,222,111 in a triplet grid. It all fits in 7 beat framework as well so it is quite logical, symmetrical and beautiful. The harmonic material is all diatonic and derived from the notes of the simple sing-song motif you hear at the beginning of the tune.

The B section is simply a re-arrangement of 7 as in 444,333,555…. 444,333,777 and 444,333,999. Sounds mathematical (and it is) but is quite nice sounding I think…especially when swung.

The C section is some sort of fanfare it seems that nearly got out of hand.

Kaju Fenny itself is a type of distilled liquor made from cashews and is very popular in Goa which I where I had the inspiration for this piece.
