"As I was the only percussionist I needed to cover both percussion 1, and 2, books. This was a challenge so compromises needed to be made. Three triangle parts were played on one triangle, crotale parts were played on the glockenspiel, finger cymbal parts were played on a triangle.

The use of electronics (malletKAT and Roland Octapad) really helped make it possible to cover most of the cues.

This was an extremely fun show to play. The music is well written and the percussion is so integral to the show."

"It hasn’t always been easy (and it’s certainly very odd right now!) but personally I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I’ve heard a few things along the way that have informed how I’ve thought about New York City and the idea of 'making it'”.

"The musical experience of recording a Broadway cast album ranges from easy to difficult depending on the circumstances. I find that the two factors that contribute most to the quality of the experience are: 1) how good the band is; and 2) how soon after you started the show you record the album"

"When I was preparing to conductNice Work if You Can Get It, I began by watching a video of the conductor and marking my score with any cues or beat patterns that were not obvious to me. I wanted to be completely comfortable with the Musical Directors choreography before watching the video of the stage and trying to put the music to the action of the actors and dancers."
