Review:
“[Leonard Garrison] plays with all the aggression or sensitivity that is called for; the playing can be quite delicate and quite brusque.” (American Record Guide)

“For lovers of contemporary flute music, this CD provides exciting, and also thoughtful selections from among our most distinguished composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. …the performance sparkles…” (The Flutist Quarterly)
