Commissioned by Zipang (a professional trombone quartet in Japan), Tokyo Triptych is a work in three movements, each of which is named for a district of Tokyo.

SHINJUKU - An extended and energetic fanfare named after this spectacular area in Tokyo that houses some of Japan's most beautiful and modernistic skyscrapers, as well as the city's busiest railway station.

SENGAKUJI - In turn reflective and passionate, this movement is named after a small temple in Shinagawa district. It is one of Edo's most famous and romanticized landmarks, and marks the grave of 47 ronin; (samurai) whose death is considered a prime example of bushido; (the warrior code).

SHIBUYA - This fast and energetic finale is named for Tokyo's newest shopping district, a favorite haunt of young and old alike as well as being famous for its varied nightlife.
