Waltz for Desmond is dedicated to saxophonist Paul Desmond, who wrote Take Five from Dave Brubeck's "Time Out," an album featuring different time signatures for each song. Like Take Five, Waltz for Desmond is a jazz waltz in 5/4, with a solo section in 4/4, and a coda in mixed meter (6/4 + 5/4). Commuter's Lament is an experimental piece for big band. Also employing various meters, this programmatic composition uses contemporary soundscapes to tell the story of a driver braving the notorious traffic of Los Angeles.
