Product Details


Early one winter morning after playing at a Jazz club, composer and clarinetist Jack End observed a cat that had lain dead for a few days to be still in the dimly lit gutter in front of Sibley Music Library. Wen he dropped the instruments in his studio he sat at the piano to express his sadness - what else but with a Blues. His band played Blues for a Killed Kat for years and so did those who gathered for an Eastman School of Music class reunion in 1960 when Frederick Fennell asked him to score it for The Eastman Wind Ensemble. The Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra recorded it twenty-five years later in 1986 when Jack End died in his 67th year.
