The cardboard box on my porch was the first hint that I was in for some great new music. It really is like Christmas to open the package to see what is inside. In this case it was 27 new CDs straight from Mark Morette’s recording company. They were all from the Midwest Clinic in Chicago last December. A lot of this content is brand new. New music from John Mackey, Julie Giroux, David Holsinger, Ryan George, Philip Sparke are part of the program this time along with a work from Randall Thompson to delight your ears.
