Relapse is a new work for orchestra inspired by my research on the use and struggle with drugs by many of the master musicians and innovators in jazz. The music reflects struggles with addiction, the various psychological effects of using, and the public association of drugs with jazz with reference to various interviews, biographies, and articles on the subject.
