“The Delaware is an especially scenic river, and, along with the rich history of the Delaware Valley, Shohola and surrounding areas, was the inspiration for Bill’s piece.  The suite is a tribute to, and a musical ride down, this great Northeastern river. In seven movements the work features fanfares, a hoedown, 12-tone rows, boogie-woogie, a jazz waltz, bebop and free improvisation, and spoken 'campfire stories' à la Mark Twain and Garrison Keillor. Also on the recording: music by Miles Davis, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bud Powell, Django Reinhardt, Marvin Stamm and Heitor Villa-Lobos.”
