Youthful recording!

Youthful recording, very good production. SFYSO Percussion is very good!


Still undecided. I know nothing of Stookey except that I've read that he's the youngest composer to be comissioned by the SF Symphony. It's not the most origional work and it sounds as if he borrows freely from better composers in the vein of Gabe Prokofiev. This is even more apparent with the "dance mix" From what I can tell this is just a kid still feeling his way to his own voice so a few years down the line we'll be able to make a better assesment of his talents. -Bz

It's music that seems to come from everywhere and nowhere simultaneously, which is no mean feat. Highly recommended.
