Review:
"The young musicians in the TCU winds are great players with the 'chops' that come with youth and are well trained to become tomorrow's prominent band directors, arrangers and performers. ...This is a very nice album and I enjoyed all three of these works, most particularly the Maslanka. I think that wind ensemble buffs would really admire the performances and, while the music is all quite different, I think any listener would find something attractive in this interesting program. Recommended!" (Audiophile Audition)
