Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Webster Cycles, scored for six trombones, is at times richly textured, at times stark, but always engaging. From moment to moment, an individual trombone may call out or murmur or a few may unite in contrapuntal or parallel efforts as the piece blends the abstract with the idiomatic. Pure tones hang serenely in the air as noted trombonist and J.A. Deane’s lively ornaments and articulations acknowledge his instrument’s long association with various types of jazz. This is a 30-minute CD ED/single. “Deane is a soulfully expressive musician and, despite the calm and coolness of Peters’s music, his interpretation has immediate emotional appeal as well as seductive depth.” [Julian Cowley, The Wire magazine] “The overlapping trombones heard in Read more The Webster Cycles immerse you in 30 minutes of incantatory bliss—imagine floating into an ocean-sized harbor bounded by distant foghorns. Essential.” [Christopher DeLaurenti, The Stranger (Seattle)] “Peters’ music…has in abundance what I miss in so much new American music: strong commitment to an aesthetic goal, and adherence to that goal without compromise.… Bring on more Steve Peters!” [Sequenza21] Read less
