Show: Airborne Symphony

  • Airborne Symphony
  • Aerodynamics
  • Weeping Willow Rag
  • Redline Tango
  • Stairway To Heaven

The Good: This is such a great sounding hornline, just like last year. Very balanced, great intonation, and attacks and releases are pretty clean. I love the airplane sound made by the pedal tones. Wonderful dissonance during the air battle portion of the show. The arrangement of Stairway to Heaven works so much better than I ever could have imagined. Hats off to Tim Salzman. Glad to have you back arranging for drum corps.

The Bad: I'm still not happy with the drumline, although it has improved over the years. Too many flams for my taste, however.

The Ugly: The narration. Enough said. I understand the narration comes from the original Airborne Symphony. If that's the case, then that's one piece I'm not going to buy.

Overview: There's a lot of good things happening in Seattle. The horns sound wonderful, Tim Salzman's arranging compliments that asset. I've already said my piece about the narration. Just get the drums and visual up to the hornline standard and you're back in Finals.
