Notes & Reviews:

Music and imagination have always been linked together as a symbiotic pair. Whether by intention or by chance, music inspires, touching that part of the human mind that imagines things. Here, world-class hornist JD Shaw (former Boston Brass hornist) joins with the experienced conducting of Eric Rombach-Kendall and the talented musicians of the University of New Mexico Wind Symphony to perform a collection of works in which artistry; colors, passion, and sorrow illustrate "Tales of Imagination." JD Shaw is currently Professor of French Horn at the University of New Mexico and was formerly the French hornist with internationally acclaimed Boston Brass, where he was creative director, music arranger, and co-owner of the ensemble. JD is an active solo artist and travels extensively throughout the United States as well as many countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. In 2010, he was the featured recitalist at the 42nd International Horn Symposium in Brisbane, Australia. He has been a featured performer on NPR's Performance Today and the CBS Morning Show.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Shaw's high register is amazing, his technical skills very good, but his vibrato is outsized and often cloying. Outstanding playing by the University of New Mexico Wind Symphony under its director, Eric Rombach-Kendall.
