Notes & Reviews:

Trumpet titan Joe Burgstaller (formerly of Canadian Brass) presents a compendium including baroque, classical, contemporary classical, traditional spiritual, diazole, Chick Corea, and Sting! This wonderful disc includes a piece by Grammy® winner Jennifer Higdon, plus the world premiere of "Ming" from Su Lian Tan.

Dashing ... dazzled like sheet-lightning.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
And so goes the program, meandering through arrangements and original works. Meridian Arts Ensemble percussionist John Ferrari is the vibraphonist in three Children's Songs by Chick Corea. Pianist Rosenblum is heard in Kreisler's 'Gypsy Caprice', where Burgstaller plays very high. MAE trombonist Ben Herrington and pianist Julian Gargiulo are the collaborators in a filmnoirish 'Lullaby' Burgstaller composed for the MAE in 1998. Stephanie Cheng is the pianist in three lovely songs by Jennifer Higdon. The album's centerpiece is Ming, composed by Su Lian Tan for Burgstaller in 2012. The 12-minute work is varied, and quite Western in style. Burgstaller ends the program with an eclectic series: tango (Piazzolla's haunting 'Oblivion'), Mexican (trumpeter Rafael Mendez's virtuoso version of 'La Virgine de la Macarena'), spiritual ('Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child'), and pop (Sting's melancholy 'Secret Marriage'). He has a round, warm, beautiful tone that I could listen to all day. Fine work by excellent collaborators.
