Notes & Reviews:

"David Froom's music will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to guess what will happen next. The works on this disc are diverse, but share a common concern for subverting expectations." So writes composer Eric Mode about David Froom, born in 1951. Froom says that he revels "in a world where the new can embrace any aspect of a readily available past," and indeed, Brahmsian gestures and sonorities, Stravinskian rhythms and dislocations, Reichian drive and repetition, and bebop riffs and syncopations all coexist here, forged into one distinctive voice.
