American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This collection, called "American Byways", comes out of the University of Central Oklahoma. These are six pieces for soloists and ensemble by Michael Daugherty played with impressive skill and enthusiasm by this remarkable faculty. This is an impressive release showing Daugherty at his best, and he's given outstanding performances in excellent sound. This is a fine advertisement for the school as well, which is turning out to be one of the country's premier music institutions.
