"A Grease Fantasy", written in 2009, puts forth themes from from the musical/movie Grease in a variety of styles. An orchestration is available from the composer (who's one of our favorite people around here!)

The movements (with edited descriptions from the composer's program notes):

1. Prelude (solo) - predominantly original material, with Grease themes barely recognzable
2. The Word - uses the...theme song material as a...point for an improvisation and concerto antics
3. Hopelessly Devoted - essentially an arrangement of the Olivia Newton-John billboard hit
4. Look at Me - treated as a scherzo
5. The One That I Want - is transplanted from the original 1970's disco into the rhythmic world of Afro-Cuban music...a new melody over the harmonic structure of the original song. After a pizzicato improvisation, the soloist engages the piano with a sort of arco-hand-jive exchange...

16 pages (double bass part, orchestra tuning). Includes spiral-bound piano accompiament (31 pages).
