And If All Were Dark: A Review

By John Kenny • February 17, 2020 in Recordings
Of all David Taylor's albums, this is perhaps the most extraordinary and original. This is not just great playing - it's an extraordinary concept.

By Brad Edwards • February 07, 2020 in Recordings
Both for his excellent playing and for the presentation of valuable bass trombone solo repertoire, George Curran is to be congratulated for an outstanding offering.

Smile: A Review

By David Wilken • December 09, 2019 in Recordings
This album is remarkable for a number of reasons, notably Jarvis's impeccable trombone playing and the lush, colorful arrangements. Even more impressive is the story that accompanies the circumstances around its creation.


Starsplitter: A Review

By Matthew C. Haislip • December 04, 2019 in Recordings
The DePauw University Band plays with a maturity and joy that makes listening to this CD an enjoyable experience. The faculty performances are worth hearing, as well. I look forward to hearing other discs from the faculty and students at DePauw.
