Notes & Reviews:

Until his death from cancer, Perkinson served as artistic director for the performance program of Columbia Colleges Center for Black Music Research. In the Chicago Tribunes obituary, jazz critic Howard Reich described how the classically trained Perkinson "blossomed into one of the most protean musicians this Country has produced, his vast oeuvre encompassing everything from sonatas and concertos to scores for TV shows.
