Program Notes

The revival of interest in the music of George Hamilton Green can be credited almost completely to the scholarly efforts and xylophone artistry of Bob Becker and the world-famous percussion group, NEXUS. Here is the arrangement Bob Becker made for NEXUS which has caught the attention of audiences and percussionists around the world and created a whole new fascination with the xylophone as a solo instrument.
