The Connections album contains three suites. The first, Music for Dance in Three Movements. Followed by music based on three paintings by the Norwegian Artist, AK Dolven called Please Return from her retrospective book of the same title and concluding with a five movement suite based on the poetry of the Norwegian writer, Eldrid Lunden from her 2003 book, The Flock and the Shadow. Connections is the next step in the progression of the music of Bill Stevens with its use of Impressionistic Jazz modal harmony and European influenced electric Miles.Connections at iTunes and Apple Muisc
