Composer Joanne Bender wrote this suite of four short movements for tenor saxophone and piano which Willem Moolenbeek recorded with his piano colleague Boyd McDonald. He felt that these would go beautifully with the art of Jonathan Munz. Munzy agreed and the result is this video. His paintings and prints are available at his website. Scores and parts for the music on Joanne's site.
