Notes & Reviews:

The wind ensemble repertory has a rich history and a vibrant contemporary presence. Donald Grantham, for example, evokes gospel music of the 1920s and '30s in Starry Crown, which draws on the earthy vitality of call-and-response sermons. Steven Bryant's Ecstatic Waters reaches forward to present a pulsating narrative of exuberance, contradiction and subtle dialogue. Gordon Jacob wrote two series of settings of Old Wine In New Bottles in which he took old English settings and clothed them in his zesty and witty colors. To end, we have the songful lyricism of Carter Penn's Hold This Boy and Listen. Stephen L. Gage has served as instrumental music coordinator, professor of conducting, and director of bands at Youngstown State University's Dana School of Music since 1993.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The Dana Chamber Winds, composed of music faculty and area professionals, contributes readings of two folksong collections by Gordon Jacob: the longtime repertory favorite Old Wine in New Bottles (1960) and More Old Wine in New Bottles (1978). The warm and lively readings by are marked by fine solos and rich ensemble sonorities.
