New Sax Concerto recording
The United States Navy Band recently released a CD containing my Soprano Sax Concerto with Timothy Roberts playing the solo part, and Captain George Thompson conducting. The recording is really fantastic, and I think it’s the best one out there right now. And best of all — it’s free. In case you didn’t get a copy of the physical CD — called Command Performance — during the Midwest Clinic, you can download — yes, download, not stream! — the full recording from this website.
My sincere thanks to Timothy Roberts for his artistry and dedication to the piece, the Navy Band’s enlisted conductor MUCS Michael J. Schmitz for his tremendous help during the rehearsals and throughout the recording process, and to the entire band for playing the piece so well.
And thank you to the government for making this recording public domain!
