Robert Spring’s sensational new disc Oncoming Traffic has been released on Summit Records. Featuring Spring’s definitive recording of my Duo Sonatawith saxophonist Timothy McAllister, this long awaited cd also contains works by John Mackey, Roshanne Etezady, and Scott McAllister.
“Gregory Wanamaker’s Duo Sonata was, for me, another high point. This is another amazing piece for clarinet and saxophone and another attention getting performance by Spring and McAllister. The Wanamaker exists in four movements, each of which explores the range, color and expressive qualities of the clarinet and saxophone separately and almost as one unified timbre. The Elegy (second movement) is a very poignant departure in tone from almost everything else on this album, having been written in response to the 9-11 tragedy. A very compelling work.”
