Combine the flexible rhythmic concept of classical music with jazz harmonies
The basic idea of Parallels was to combine the flexible rhythmic concept of classical-style composed chamber music with jazz harmonies, and phrasing and sound of improvised jazz. Although there is no place for improvisation in the piece, certain parts do sound like improvised music. Parallels, being a rather demanding piece for tuba players, sheds light on the extreme versatility of this beautiful brass instrument.
