The title, Three City Blocks, suggests a descriptive program, but the work is neither programmatic nor descriptive of any specific urban locale.

Much of the musical language of the work, especially in the rhythm and harmony, is drawn from American jazz.

It is through the jazz-like sounds and style of this composition that Harbison evokes the energy and vivacity of urban culture and suggests images of urban America.
