 Lush Music August 6, 2013 By Robert E. (New York, NY) See All My Reviews "Upon a recent hearing of a recording on WQXR-FM, I was reminded of what an easy pleasurable listening experience the Florida Suite is. It is most definitely a tuneful and lushly orchestrated comosition and Maestro Lloyd-Jones has drawn a masterfully nuanced performance from his excellent orchestra." Report Abuse
