Just a few of the wonderful sights to see in Arizona are represented in this suite. Amazing Arizona!; the first movement; is a tribute to the state as a whole with its grand and majestic sound. The second movement; Painted Desert Jazz; paints the colors of the desert with a blues-like improvisation. Sounds of the Petrified Forest; the third movement; creates a mysterious sound with open fifths and chromatic scales; all in a minor key. Grand Canyon Rag; the final movement; sounds and feels like a classic Scott Joplin rag and has an energetic; joyful sound.
