In The Mean Street Anthems, I attempted to capture the spirit of film noir from the 1940s and 1950s. The rugged, angular, and at times, sleazy characters in films like The Killing, The Third Man, and Rope provided the impetus for many of the musical gestures in this work. Using the various characteristics of the saxophone quartet, such as fluid lines, forced articulations, and other jazz idioms, allowed me to create many if the expressions found in the films of this genre.
