Program Notes

When the Alabama Winds approached me to write a new piece to be premiered at Midwest, they specifically requested something that would wake the audience up and grab their attention; Devil’s Drive is my response to that request. A shattering note from the horns sets the stage for the breakneck reel that follows, while the sounds of steel guitars, banjos, and mandolins infuse the texture and lend a bluegrass feel to the piece. Solos are passed around the ensemble, and, as the title suggests, the groove never loses momentum or energy as it races towards a breathless finish.

My deepest thanks and appreciation to Randall Coleman and the Alabama Winds for the opportunity to write for them!
