Talkin’ Smack on Xenharmonic Alliance

This is a composition for Jazz Quartet – Tenor Sax (sorry for the unrealistic stray notes), fretless bass, piano, and drums. All but the drums were preformed on my Fender Mustang + GR-20 retuned on the fly by Fractal Tune Smithy.

The tuning used is 9/8 C.I. comprised of 11:10:9:8 subharmonic series on 1 and 8:9:10:11 on 16/11 or explicitly:
17/16~ 9/8~ 19/16~ 29/23~ 4/3~ 17/12~ 3/2~ 19/12~ 37/22~ 16/9~ 17/9~ 2/1
