Album No. 28 | Recorded 2012

About the Album

As we approach the one hundredth anniversary of Morton Gould’s birth, it seems an appropriate time to honor his legacy. The possibilities for such an homage are seemingly endless, but we have chosen to focus on two aspects of Gould’s contributions: his unforgettable patriotic miniatures and his original band compositions. In both arenas, he has left a body of work that should be enjoyed for generations to come, and we hope this recording will promote awareness of this great American composer.
