Notes & Reviews:

The Philadelphia Percussion Project, which includes members of the Philadelphia Orchestra performs seven world premiere recordings.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Volume 2 of the Philadelphia Percussion Project is the opposite of the McCormick release. More traditional ground is covered: the booming energy and electronics of Jennifer Higdon's Zones and the infectious rhythms of Rolando Morales-Matos's Little Rhumba. Don Liuzzi's `Seoul Spirit' spends I building clumsily to the swift II, which has a battle between the Korean bukh and Chinese tom-toms. Tom Gauger's Gainsborough, named for the street in Boston, is three movements of tonal keyboard percussion. I sounds like a march for toy soldiers; II wanders off in a vibraphone haze. The presto finale is rousing, with the requisite snare line and quick-spirited, falling marimba lines.
