Notes & Reviews:

The University of Florida Wind Symphony led by David A. Waybright performs the works of composer Paul Richards.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
'Witch Doctor', an eight-minute Louisiana swamp boogie for brass and percussion, is based in part on the hymn 'I'll Fly Away'. 'Eddying Towards the Day' is a five-minute whirling dervish. 'The River with Only One Bank' begins and ends peacefully. 'If You Could Only See the Frog' is a whirling dervish in uneven meter and Turkish harmonic language. Two of the works have soloists. Mikey Arbulu, recently graduated from the University of Florida, is the very good clarinetist in Snake in the Garden, a frenetic, 12-minute study about Adam and Eve's eviction from the Garden of Eden. UF professor Jonathan Helton is the able saxophonist in 'Bat out of Hell', a demonic, perpetual-motion sort of 'Flight of the Bumblebee'. Excellent readings, fine band.
