Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The lone original work is tubist Anderson's CBQ Suite (1991), where each movement is named and tailored for a group member. 'Running Ross' is a madcap chromatic ditty for trumpeter Ross Beacraft, 'Jumpin Jim' a slippery thing for trombonist Mattern, 'Gorgeous Greg' a ballad for horn player Gregory Flint, 'Magnificent Matt' a piccolo trumpet showpiece for Matthew Lee, and 'Dangerous Dan' a funky perpetual-motion tune for tubist-composer Anderson. CBQ Suite is quite skillfully written, entertaining, and doubtless a valuable part of the group's concert programs.
