The River Fisherman

Composer: Simon Garcia
Code: RMD1321

The River Fisherman is a fun and lively quartet with both player and audience appeal. Marked ‘medium swing’, the music is jazzy and energetic, instantly appealing, reflecting the big band sonorities and idiom of the 1940s. If you like Simón García’s music you will love this piece.
