3) Chanty on the Dolores
This long piece describes adventure rafting on the
raging Dolores Riverin the San Juan Mountains.
Solid themes with a nautical character.
5) From the Summit 4:22
The title track of Allan's
second solo album, this medium paced music is inspirational
and theatric while maintaining poigniant intimacy.
15) Awaiting the Sun 3:50
This medium slow structured piece has strong themes
of a pensive, spacious
character. It is fully scored with a nice improvisational section.
20) Fog Rolling In 2:40
A fully scored piece, this music is very classical, descriptive,
with a twist.
21) Lichen Logic 2:51
Also fully scored, Lichen has lovely motion and an hymnlike interlude.
23) Mount Blanca 3:30
Medium fast, fully written, this music is melodic, uplifting, and rhythmic.
24) On the Road to Capulin 3:20
Delightful and waiflike, the music is lilting and hummable. It expresses traveling a deserted lane that leads to comfort.
41) Always Building 2:15
Reminiscent of “whistle
while you work”, this fully written piece is funny,
moves nicely with varied rhythmic themes.
“Allan's compositions are a
display of really great musicianship....”
