Notes & Reviews:

As befits both the Meridian Arts Ensemble and composer Andrew Rindfleisch, their collaboration on In The Zone doesn't so much blend the tradition of the brass quintet with modern tonal and harmonic ideas as send them crashing headlong into each other, making for a glorious collision that both re-imagines and renews our conception of brass chamber music.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The most memorable selections are Rindfleisch's beautiful arrangements of five songs. 'Warte, warte, nur ein Weilchen' (Wait, wait, only a little while) is a sentimental song from Walter Kollo's 1922 operetta Marietta. The arrangement of Stephen Foster's 'Gentle Annie' (1856) is very interesting and creative, the playing quite tender and beautifully blended. James Thornton's 'When You Were Sweet 16' (1898) includes perfect unison playing, a lovely melody by trombonist Herrington, and warm chords. Stephen Foster's nostalgic, hymn-like 'Ring de Banjo' (1861) becomes quite lively at the end. And in Henry Monk's familiar old hymn, 'Abide With Me' (1861), the haunting opening (a muted group unison that is amazingly in tune) leads to a most unusual harmonization, and then to more unisons. The final note is very long and perfectly tuned. MAE's ability to control and match pitch and tone is very impressive.
