"The Thompson Fields" was generally commissioned through ArtistShare by Christophe Asselineau, and became the title piece of the 2015 recording The Thompson Fields. It was inspired by the view from the top of a silo on the Thompson farm, outside of Windom, MN. The piece evokes the landscape of southwest Minnesota, and the first solo (the piano) evokes memories, stories and ghosts of generations blowing in the wind over the waving green bean fields on Tony Thompson's farm.
This piece has passed through several versions, and I am including a video of the premiere in case you want to feature guitar throughout.
It requires an improvisers (guitar and piano) who are willing to think outside of traditional jazz language--thinking coloristically. It has a guitar solo at the end too that is more rock oriented. The piece is largely rubato, so it requires a conductor with some skill.
