"Drift" was written in 2003 by Darcy James Argue. This is a very hip jazz waltz for jazz ensemble." Loping, triplety swing, q=98 "Drift" is dedicated to Bob Brookmeyer. It has a slow 3/4 feel and Brookmeyer-esque orchestration and harmonies, emphasizing low-register fluegels and woodwinds in a C minor melody punctuated with lots of space. It features tenor sax in a modulating solo section that builds feverishly but resolves itself to a cathartic C major -- however, the resolution is short-lived and the piece returns to its minor inclinations for the extended coda.
