Strange Humors – sax recording
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, with trips to the University of Alabama, Ole Miss, and West Point. There will be several blog entries coming, but first, I wanted to make everybody aware of a new studio recording of “Strange Humors” — the version for sax quartet and djembe — just released on CD by the H2 Quartet (for whom I made the arrangement). The recording is stellar, and I hope you’ll check it out. This is the first time I’ve heard the piece in any form other than the original and felt like it really can work just as well even without strings.
