Description

Beginning with a snare riff based on this audible football chant, the content of Five Mississippi Rush is inspired by its title. A five-Mississippi rush is often used in pickup football games where there is no offensive line and the defense has to count five “Mississippis” before rushing the quarterback. Cliff Taylor’s use of five-note motives and five-element phrases combine with the melodic and harmonic language of the blues that is rooted in the State of Mississippi. This engaging work will appeal to both performers and audiences. Exhilarating throughout!
