fascinating sounds of tuba with percussion ensemble, this is Velvet Brown's third
Crystal CD. She is quickly becoming one of the best-known tuba players in the
world. A protégé of the legendary Roger Bobo, she is an international soloist
and associate professor of tuba and euphonium at Pennsylvania State University.
This is a spectacular album with some invigorating sounds. It is rare to hear such fine tuba playing and rarer still to hear the tuba with such stimulating percussion, played by some of the best players anywhere.
“Velvet Brown has
established herself as one of the premiere tuba soloists in the world” NACWPI Journal
