This is a three movement piece that is a tribute to the Ranier Family. Lou, Peg and Tom are dear friends who are inspiring people. Tom is a great musician who plays piano (all keyboards), clarinet and saxophone as well as a photographer. His father, Lou who was himself a wonderful clarinet and saxophone player, inspired him to pursue music. Peg, Tom's mother was a wonderful lady, a singer and most importantly, the matriarch of the family with an enduring spirit.
The performers on these recordings are Tom Ranier and Phil O'Connor on Bb clarinet and the legendary Gene "Cip" Cipriano on Bass Clarinet.
My hope is to incorporate a photo presentation to go along with the piece in performance.
