From the composer:
This piece was commissioned by Portugal Tubist, Sergio Carolino and inspired by taking 4 bar solos in a jazz framework, except that both do it simultaneously in this work, a kind of dueling tubas. So, there are times when the pair play the same rhythm in 3rd’s no less and others when they are completely opposed and “disagree”. It sometimes explores free tonality and at times is very tonal. A minor 3rd provides some of the building blocks for the jazz influenced work using jazz lines and phrasing jazz infused high energy piece, sometimes a wild fight and sometimes harmonious cooperation. It is recorded on Sergio’s CD, Agreements & Disagreements.
Solo parts included: tuba 1+2, drum set
