“I use a typical 5-piece drum set augmented with some standard percussive effects: splash cymbal, china cymbal, ratchet, temple block, cowbell, tambourine, mark tree, conga, and a Miller Machine with mounted triangle.

Our revival is enhanced by wonderful circus elements so, in addition to Pippin's classic rock and pop songs, several tunes have been arranged to include specific drum and percussion circus-style accompaniment. I was fortunate to be involved in the cast rehearsals leading up to the Broadway opening. The dance choreography from the pre-Broadway run at A.R.T. in Cambridge, Massachusetts was enhanced and in some instances completely revamped prior to the Broadway run.

Director Diane Paulus and choreographer Chet Walker are wonderfully creative and fostered an open working environment. The process was incredible. A lot of the choreography that was tweaked in cast rehearsals was translated in to the percussion book so that we (the percussionist Sean Ritenauer and I) could both breathe a little bit more. Sean came up with some great circus-style accompaniment in some of the crazier numbers.”

"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."
