A stunning program three magnificent works for wind ensemble with soloists.

A stunning program of works for soloists with wind ensemble is presented in this recording made by the University of Arizona Wind Ensemble. Acclaimed saxophonist Timothy McAllister performs a work by Daniel McCarthy inspired by the funk-horn band, Tower of Power. Brian Luce, a superlative flutist, performs in one of a handful of works written for flute with wind ensemble, while the great Jonathan Haas is joined by timpanist Gary Cook in performing Glass' work for 14 timpani with wind ensemble, creating a new sound out of the incredibly large sonorities.
