Recorded as the title track on Coming About, this work features piano and tenor (in the reed 4 part). I've tried to capture the wonderful sensation of sailing. Each of the solos has a very different character, and those solos, along with showy sections for the horns, all contribute to the highly climactic peak that makes this piece a good closer for a concert.

Along with the score & parts, you'll also get interviews with the musicians who recorded the solos on this piece. This is a rather long-form composition, so you will benefit from the video I've made on the rehearsal and performance of this piece.
