“When I heard the rough mixes of the concert I was really excited – but, we had no intention of making a record! I had wanted to merely get through the concert unscathed. Yet there was so much music packed into this evening, and the ensemble played everything so well. I could hear and feel all their attention to the detail and shape of my music. Add in flawless performances, burning solos, and an unmistakable exuberance and creative vibe…I could hear the richness of the hall and feel the energy of the audience. I knew I had a record’s worth of great material on my hands, one in which both my brand new music and un-recorded older pieces are fully realized and complete. Plus the recording quality is stellar. Fire up the CD presses!- Scott Healy
