It is assumed that each numbered opus from Clair Omar Musser consisted of 20 pieces, but there is no surviving evidence of them now. The version of Opus 11, Number 3, published in 1948, had some issues with the chords and expression markings. I made some corrections and consistencies in this new edition, but I tried to keep Musser's notation intact as much as possible.

Clair Omar Musser wrote numerous etudes as many marimbists know. It is assumed that each numbered opus consisted of 20 pieces, but there is no surviving evidence of them now. The version of Opus 6, Number 2 published in 1948 had some issues with the chords, as well as with expression markings like accents, staccatos, dynamics, etc. I made some corrections and consistencies in this new edition, but I tried to keep Musser’s notation intact as much as possible. Examining several of the original manuscripts helped clarify his personal approach to notation. - Yurika Kimura

"Others will have difficulty matching the quality of this keyboard duo arrangement of a George Gershwin hit. Bob Becker's xylophone interpretation maintains the integrity of the original melody, yet masterfully includes material that will allow the performer to demonstrate glimpses of virtuosity."

Old Man Jazz was composed (both music and lyrics) by Gene Quaw, and published in 1920 by Jos. W. Stern & Co. The original sheet music has the subtitle “An Eccentric Fox Trot Song.” The All Star Trio (George Hamilton Green, xylophone, F. Wheeler Wadsworth, tenor saxophone, and Victor Arden, piano) recorded a very clever version of the piece for Victor Records (#18699) in 1920.

This transcription arrangement is based on the All Star Trio recording, with reference to the original sheet music.

Alabama Moon was composed (both lyrics and music) by George Hamilton Green in 1920, and quickly published by the Sam Fox Company. Written in the nostalgic style of a southern waltz, the words and melody convey a popular period idiom of the 1920s era.

"After a fantastic performance by Bob and Yurika at PASIC 2013 ... I'm sure 'Alabama Moon' is already on the music stands of many ragtime enthusiasts."

Bringing Chopin's intimate and quasi-improvisational work to the warm sound quality of the modern marimba is an innate marriage. One can only wonder what he would have written for the marimba if he had access to the knowledge, pedagogy, and instrument of today. But this arrangement may give us a glimpse of this by illustrating an introspective mood for marimba. Valse Brillante is an alluring work emphasizing the sumptuous features of the marimba.
