Charlie Morrow - Toot! Too
Enjoy a hearty glimpse of composer Charlie Morrow's world. Focussing on his "Wave Music" series, Toot! Too assembles congregations of instruments - sixty clarinets, conch choruses, an army of drums and bugle horns, among many others - into merry choruses honoring Morrow's love for community and his celebratory nature in the world (and his understanding of the world's celebratory nature).
"In working on this LP over the past years, Charlie Morrow and I have become close. It has been a joy to have him in my life. At the age of 73, he is determined and creative and as positive as ever. Each time we speak, new projects arise -- like a mysterious soup boiling up fresh aromas. One of my favorite memories with Charlie was us staying up 'til the wee small hours of the morning drinking a bottle of sweet potato shochu, me listening to him tell funny and poignant remembrances. I am happy to share these lovely recordings, just a pinky toe in his artistic footprint, but wow, such a gorgeous toe!" - Sean McCann, Recital Program
