Artist's Website

    "This CD exhibits musicianship of the highest order with all brass afficionados requirements of beautiful tone, timbre and clean technique; it is a CD to enjoy...repeatedly".

    -Harvey G. Phillips, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Indiana University

    "This compilation disc celebrates many of Barton Cummings' live performances of commissioned works and arrangements he championed during the heyday of his playing career. The sound is full and the tonguing and musicianship are first rate".
