By James William Sobaskie • May 11, 2020 in Recordings At first blush, the recent release of Preludes, Rags and Cakewalks, conducted by Eric Crees, might seem like an album of encores, or a collection meant for light listening. But this compact disc is much more.
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.
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.
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.
