Todd and I have a new CD of early percussion music that just came out. It is called “Restless, Endless, Tactless – Johanna Beyer and the Birth of American Percussion Music”. I am so proud of this project! It is a great collection of little known music that helped define our repertoire. It also features the Baylor Percussion Group and Matt McClung with great help and direction by John Kennedy. It is on New World Records. Buy it here.
