Notes and Editorial Reviews

Tampa, FLorida-based McCormick Percussion Ensemble (artists-in-residence at the University of South Florida) create an irresistible force field with percussion music for which the choice of instruments is left up to the players.

The performers are unnervingly in step with each piece's different vibe. There is not one measure of anything they play that doesn't come magically alive.
