"Here's another new orchestration by Seattle favorite Bruce Monroe. As an adaptation of the original Bill Brohn orchestration for Peter Rothstein's 'chamber' production of Ragtime (cast of 15, orchestra of 15) we were able to keep most of the original percussion book intact.

Seen here are many of my usual stock effects - Remo Spoxe for the Ellis Island bell plates; alarm bell, chanchiki, and tubaphon pipes for Henry Ford's factory; vintage temple blocks and cowbells.

The angled mounting option on the new Grover Pro Miller Machine is a marvelous option for tight setups."

"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."
