  • September – Colors / Dance (written by George Winston). This piece was originally a piece for solo piano which has been arranged and extended in order to explore the various moods of the original in more depth and, also, to get a deeper connection with the autumnal theme.


  • The Neighbours Complain (written by Norman Impey). This was originally a showpiece for the drummer of the 1940s big band The Skyrockets Orchestra to ‘give it some’. The original genre was big band swing. The new version is somewhat more funky. David Impey would like to offer his apologies to his father who wrote it.
