10 after 2 (V.101-2)
from Second Glances

Serial jazz, or music in a style incorporating the ensemble and improvisation of jazz which also employs a serial tonal structure, has been problematic from the start. Although the mingling of the two were inevitable, jazz and nonfunctional harmony seemed not ever to mix in a practical or convincing way.

10 after 2 explores ways to solve this dilemma and reconcile their differences. Here, amid written solos and improvised sections, hexachords are used in a similar manner as chord or modes, and in a sense even more freedom is given the ensemble.
