  • Program Notes

    I have had a lifelong fascination with and great respect for Native American cultures. Their neverending struggles, highly imaginative artistic vision, spirituality, forms of dress & style, customs, belief in animal spirits and their deep respect for & connection with nature and different types of people (orientation, physical impairments) and high regard for their elders inspired me to write A Tune for America (included on the original recording of A Native American-Jazz Tribute). Musically the two styles compliment one another; the minor pentatonic scales of their flutes connect well with blues scales, altered notes and varied chord voicings used by great jazz artists.

    Please note: Sheet music is temporarily unavailable. Please contact Pamela or check back in January 2024. The original version - for flute, bass and drums - is available on A Native American-Jazz Tribute recording by Pamela Sklar.
