Notes and Editorial Reviews

Russell S. Howland was born near Kirksville, Missouri. Following high school graduation he located in New York and performed as a woodwind specialist. Later he received his degrees from the University of Illinois. He spent many years in the teaching profession, first in public schools in Wisconsin and Colorado. After 27 years of teaching woodwinds, harp and theory, he retired from California State University at Fresno. Michael Titlebaum conceived his Prelude and Wobbly Dance when he watched his twin daughters trying to balance upright on their feet. They would frequently stand up next to the sofa and wobble their hips for a while before attempting any steps. The Wobbly Dance was written to be an accompaniment to these first attempts at Read more walking. Richard Lawn is a member of the Nova Saxophone Quartet and contributes two pieces to this disc; his delightful arrangement of Sax-O-Doodle by Rudy Wiedoeft and his own original composition Three Sketches for Saxophone Quartet.
