Anabel is a musical piece that I composed while on Broadway as musical director for Love Jones the Musical. It is inspired by my daughter Catriona Forbes who was 5 years old at the time. The melody is from my emotional state when I was not with my daughter. It has a melancholic vibe sprinkled with melodic releases. The orchestration is based on a small ensemble with winds and brass as well as a smaller string section using odd tunings for the beginning of the piece. I had played this piece on piano during sound check in every new city that the stage play performed in until I refined the basic melody. Once I returned to my studio in Nashville, I completed the orchestration and then only later recording and mixing it in New York. I hope you enjoy this moment.
