I wrote a set of piano pieces, one for each month of the year. Some are evocative of the month, some are just barely related, and others are personal. This one falls into the last category. The melodic material is inspired by the musical letters in the name Jacquelynne Fontaine – A, C, E, E, F, A, E. September is the month of her birth. Since Jacque inspired me to be a composer, I decided to return the favor with this tribute.
