Sojourn 1 for trombone solo is the first in a series of works for solo instruments titled Sojourn by the composer. Sojourn 1, a single-movement work, was commissioned by trombonist Monique Buzzarte who requested that, rather than employing a plethora of extended techniques as is so often the case in works for solo instrument, this piece would sing. Though much of the time this piece is rather melancholy in feel, with its sojourn referring to life's ephemerality, Sojourn 1 is loosely based on the traditional spiritual "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child," with the outline of the melody growing in apparency toward the end of the work. .
