Fifty-Second Street Suite (Choral Score) composed by Richard Thompson. For SATB choir, SATB vocal soli, piano, cello/bass instrument, percussion. General. Medium to Moderately Difficult. Choral Score. Published by Laurendale Associates (MN.CH-1291).

Contains four pieces: 1. Fifty-Second Street Swing, 2. Remembering Billie, 3. On the Road, 4. Take Five. The following is a remembrance by the composer: Under the picture in my high school yearbook it said, 'Silence is golden.' Lost my diploma on the way home from graduation but I knew what I wanted to be: 'A Big Band Pianist.' Started hanging out in Manhattan on Fifty Second Street. There were seven jazz clubs in one block, between Sixth and Seventh. Couldn-t drink at seventeen, so just nursed cokes at a dollar each. My salary was twenty a week. Sat by the great Art Tatum, the incredible blind pianist. My teacher accompanied Billie at the Onyx. Later, Dizzy and Bird appeared on the scene. This wonderful year passed, and I swapped my piano for a rifle. The Marines had plans for me. Where would I find a piano? Would I still be able to play? But, find them I did: in the States and even on some Pacific Islands. Sometimes you could even recognize what you were playing. Sometimes, had to kick someone off the bench. I told Kim Rich, the poet, my stories and somehow she made these wonderful lyrics with just a few phone conversations. Hey! I'm immortal!!!
