Cabaret Berlin by William West

Cabaret Berlin

"Makes me want to put on my copy of "Cabaret"-the film."
-Randy Bowser

(Notes reprinted from a posting on the Northern Sounds Forum)

My piano player and his trusted sidekick Joe (the trumpet player) has landed in a German Cabaret by mistake. Their little piece started out with the title “Dance Rus” but after all is said and done, what once sounded Russian now sounds more like the backroom in some cabaret circa 1920.

In all seriousness, I had to write a piece for our upcoming recital on December 15. I had the hardest time getting anything going. Writer’s block has had a hold on me for the better part of the year – just can’t seem to shake that monkey loose.
