Product Description

Composition by Kirk MacDonald, Big Band Arrangement by Joe Sullivan.

“Common Ground was composed with the idea of creating a melody that consisted primarily of the perfect fifth interval. It’s harmonic structure is cyclical and modulates through all 12 keys. The tune modulates each measure alternating between minor 7 and dominant 7 structures using what I like to refer to as the long cycle. Moving up (or down) a tritone followed by moving down a semitone.” (Kirk MacDonald)
