Thread Name: Help: Tunes in 5/8 7/8 etc for recorder
Subject: Tunes in 5/8 7/8 etc for recorder
My litte brother Neil plays the saxophone, as I've mentioned before; but, hey, he's still my brother! My son (21) bought Neil's 4-year-old daughter Ella a descant recorder for Christmas, which she's managing as well as you'd expect a four-year-old with a jazzman for a father. But Neil has taken an interest in it, to the ext that he's bought -- at his own expense! -- a tenor recorder and a flageolet in D.

I rashly offered to supply him with some challenging tunes in Brubek-like times, (i.e. 5/8, 9/8, you name it) and interesting modes. And of course, I can't just seem to lay my hands on any, can I? But I bet there are plenty of you who can!
