I. Four-Part Slow Drag, II. The "Last Call" Waltz, III. Bowery Rag. Charming melodies from the jazz master capture the style of the early 20th Century dances, which are updated with mid-20th Century harmonies (including dramatic chromaticisms, and passages reminiscent of Leonard Bernstein's music). Hersch says of his work: "The inspiration for 'Saloon Songs' comes from my colorful mental images of Lower Manhattan in the early part of the 20th Century...'Four-Part Slow Drag' is sweet and a bit melancholy. 'The Last Call Waltz' is a darkly comic evocation of the last, slightly desperate moments of an inebriated patron's evening at a downtown saloon. And 'The Bowery Rag' is in classic ragtime form." Intermediate level, with some 10ths in the left hand. .
