Streets Ahead is a duo for tenor horn and E flat bass and draws on moods from three streets in Motueka in the 'top of the south'.

The first, 'Whakarewa Street' is a lively rhythmic dance in changing metres reflecting the bustling activity of this street where the local high school is situated.

'Motueka Quay' is a quiet reflection of the calm water near the Motueka spit where bird life is abundant. 'Fearon Street', where the Top 10 Holiday Park is situated, features another lively dance in which musical patterns are gradually transformed.

Dedication note

Streets Ahead was composed for Mike Ford and Nick Sharpe two of New Zealand's finest performers who reflect the title of the piece 'streets ahead'.
