This was written by Noreen Sauls, and I found it in a 1993 music magazine as sheet music, which is rare for jazz. Of course, there's no bass or drum like a typical trio would have, but I made this recording for an experiment. The arrangement is inspired by the Chopin prelude Op. 28 #4.

These are various evening photos. The piece can be further improvised or played at a slower tempo, but the digital sound file is given as a suggestion for playing. The sheet music is at http://www.mindspring.com/~lesextra7/POR/crystaltwilight.pdf

Dragonflies do come to our small pool, but they can’t be counted on, so I took these photos at other local natural places nearby. The sheet music is at http://www.mindspring.com/~lesextra7/POR/dragonflies.pdf

The rough pool edges help tadpoles... and goldfish and frogs hide in the water lilies. I took a few wild fish pictures in a shallow stream as a parallel to the pool. Sheet music can be found at http://www.mindspring.com/~lesextra7/POR/hidingplaces.pdf

Ripples are fascinating and add so many colors from the surroundings, while water also has its own varied properties. I caught the circular goldfish patterns in our small rock pool and the duck splash effects in a natural stream. Sheet music can be found at http://www.mindspring.com/~lesextra7/POR/silverripples.pdf

Although other flowers bloom in the spring around the pool garden, the warm part of the summer is filled with zinnias of many colors. The sheet music is at this link- http://www.mindspring.com/~lesextra7/POR/zinnias.pdf

This piece is named after an environmental newsletter that takes its name from the tropical beans that wash up on Melbourne Florida beaches, and features local scenery. The other pieces about Florida are Crane Creek Sunset (also March of 2009) and Edge of the Lagoon (under May of 2013).

This music was inspired by a creek in Melbourne, Florida but I found that another in North Carolina had the same name, and I was able to drive there more easily in the Fall of 2004, so I took different scenery. Actually, the fall colors in the water were another kind of reflection and mood I might not have gotten in the original setting, but the tropical creek can be seen in the photos I made on a later trip and used with the music of Drifting Seed (also under March of 2009). The other piece of from my Florida Impressions is Edge of the Lagoon (under May of 2013).
