Notes & Reviews:

David Kechley's music is amongst the most innovative and kinetic chamber music being written today; bursting with provocative energy. Among guitarists and saxophonists his music is revered as well as feared -- unquestionably the most technically demanding this genre has to offer. Yes, the genre of guitar and saxophone. When Kechley wrote his first piece, "In the Dragon's Garden" (winner of the 1995 Lee Ettelson Award) for this unusual combination for the World Saxophone Congress in Pesaro, Italy, there were no known guitar/saxophone duos touring and it formed the first appearance of this combination at a World Saxophone event. Kechley has now written five pieces for guitar and saxophone. This album, Sea of Stones includes the last three: "Points of Departure," "Bounce" and "Sea of Stones," performed here by the Polish orchestra, Filharmonia Sudeka. "Sea of Stones", a double concerto, extends the original "In the Dragon's Garden" into the orchestral realm, further exploring the Japanese aesthetic of Ryoanji Temple's rock garden. Each piece is a testament to his colorful and compelling creative accomplishments.
