November 2nd, 2008 21:08
Kenneth Robinson has just finished his second full length CD for trumpet and pipe organ, now available at CD Baby and KGRMUSIC.COM. Check out the clips on Ken's Music Page. The CD features several special guests. These guests include Arturo Sandoval, Adolph Herseth, Charles Schlueter, Patrick Hession, Walter White, Randall Hawes, John Rutherford, Michael McGowan, Brian Moon, John Davidson and Luis Rusto all accompanied with the incredible virtuosity of Dr. Dave Wagner on the pipe organ. The CD was recorded in the beautiful acoustics of the Blessed Sacrement Cathedral in Detroit, Michigan. The CD has a beautiful musical tribute, in the classical style, from alumni and friends to Maynard Ferguson based on the melody, "Caruso," by Lucio Dalla and features all of these wonderful musicians. It is titled, "Farewell Maynard." Patrick plays trumpet 5, 1st & 2nd solos at beginning and "spirit of Maynard" (high notes) just before the end. Patrick also plays trumpet 2 on the Sonata "Sancti Polycarpi" for 8 trumpets, timpani, 2 trombones & organ by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber.

Toledo Jazz Orchestra's Tribute to Maynard Ferguson
January 13th, 2008 11:16
Review by Rick

This doesn't have a lot to do with running, but I went to the Toledo Jazz Orchestra's Tribute to Maynard Ferguson featuring Patrick Hession and Ric Wolkins with my pals from CrossRoads Community Church's worship band brass, Jeremy, Leo, and Vicki. It was phenomenal! Brought back a lot of memories of high school when we listened to the album Chameleon perpetually, the Interlochen concert, and camping road trips with Mom and Dad and Vicky listening to the album, Carnival, over and over and over again. The screaming trumpets last night courtesy of Mr. Hession and Mr. Wolkins definitely jacked me up for today's race so, I guess this does have a bit to do with running. My trumpeting pal, Leo, has run 6 marathons in his now ended running career including the Toledo, Columbus, and Boston. I've been gleaning some tips from him. My other band-pal, Vicki, is also a marathoner having done one in her college days. Dad, wish you coulda gone to the concert with us, you would have loved it!
