The first piece in this series, fm, was composed using a transcription of Lester Young's historic solo improvisation from his televised performance of Fine and Mellow (with Billie Holiday), as well as text from an interview with Young shortly before his death.

lbit uses a transcription of Thelonious Monk's solo from his televised performance of Lulu's Back In Town, and text from the pianist.
