"The performances are more than just enthusiastic, with discipline remarkably tight. Throw in the clarify, depth and luster of state-of-the-art sound engineering in an acoustically favorable hall and the result is a winner." — Gramophone

Composed between 1963 and 2006, these four works form a spectrum demonstrating a tendency among American composers to draw from a wide range of musical streams — classical, popular, folk and jazz. This colorful program is performed by the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Grant Llewellyn, with solo appearance by celebrated saxophonist Branford Marsalis and his quartet.
