Description: Daugherty's American pop muse is, no surprise, everywhere evident in this collection of mostly unrecorded material highlighted by the blues and spiritual-inspired Rosa Parks Boulevard, the full-on blues riffs of Blue Like an Orange and the Motown-sourced Walk the Walk. Meanwhile, Firecracker's source is a Antonio Pasculli etude and Diamond in the Rough a celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday. University of Central Oklahoma Wind Symphony; Brian Lamb.
