"In the show the music for the 'Small House of Uncle Thomas' ballet, written by dance arranger Trude Rittmann in 1951, features prominent percussion parts. The score calls for actors on stage to play various drums, blocks, gongs, cymbals, and finger cymbals. I am playing a lot of these 'ethnic' percussion parts also in the pit including Rumwong, and Klong Yao drums from Thailand.

The list of instruments I use is below. The most important is the Roc-N-Soc Lunar Series Gas Stool. This stool goes low enough for the drum set and high enough for the timpani. The stool has glides on the feet for a quick 'push back' from the drum set to stand up or spin around, up or down."

Drums:

  • Ludwig Classic Drum-Set with four Tom Toms

Percussion:

  • Chinese Drums (2) I have five in the pit to swap depending on weather conditions
  • Timpani (2)
  • Xylophone 3.5 Octave
  • Vibraphone
  • Glockenspiel
  • Tam Tam 28”
  • Opera Gongs (2) (one pitch bends up - one pitch bends down)
  • China Cymbals (5)
  • Crash Cymbals (2)
  • Splash Cymbals (3)
  • Miller Machines (2) (both with finger cymbals)
  • Triangle
  • Temple Blocks (5)
  • Temple Blocks (2 separate)
  • Wood Block
  • Finger Cymbals (1 pair)
  • Small Concert Bass Drum
  • Wood Block (attached to foot pedal)
  • Rumwong Drum
  • Klong Yao Drum

"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."
