About the Score
In Ramon Adams' 1945 book "Western Words: A Dictionary of the Range, Cow Camp and Trail," the entry for "Trail Days" reads, "The days when long trails were thoroughfares for great herds of cattle. Such a spectacle, as a business, will never be seen in the world again." My Trail Days pays homage to the spirit of the American West as I perceive it through present-day filters. The primary melodic motif, both intentionally hokey and heartwarming, carries the music across one trail day – from an expansive sunrise, through a day of cattle herding, to a time of rest – in about four minutes.
