Notes & Reviews:

"Trombonist Steve Witser's credentials are as impressive as his music-making...The repertoire on this offering is almost typical of such brass anthologies - a dollop of something ancient, a sampling from the Classical or Romantic periods, and, finally, a specimen, or specimens, from the contemporary world. This collection is skewed toward the latter category...Cleveland-born Eric Ewazen's 1992 Sonata for Trombone and Piano is an unabashed celebration of tonal euphony. Typical of his work, it is tuneful, harmonically apt, and elegantly crafted. Taking comfortably predictable materials into unexpected (but always revealing and highly satisfying) realms and, along the way, expressing irrepressible joy in the act of music-making, it demonstrates the qualities that inform the work of each performer on this release." - William Zagorski, Fanfare
