Musical Couch is based on a simple melody that I had written years ago in high school. I brought the piece back to life in my second year at Florida Southern College. Our task was to write a composition with piano and another instrument. I added piano around the main theme to fill in the gaps and to add a little more depth. The piece was originally written for tenor voice (with Matt Habib singing) and piano but in later revisions I switched to piano and baritone saxophone. The second theme in the new version of Musical Couch is all new material. The melody in this part was originally written for the tenor voice but it suited the Bari Sax just as well.
