Howl for alto saxophone and sound modules
I’m pleased to be here to discuss a wonderful work by composer Bill Dougherty, titled Howl for alto saxophone and sound modules. On this CD you’ll have the opportunity to hear my complete performance of the work, a conversation between Bill Dougherty and me, and some detailed suggestions that I hope will be useful to you in preparing the work for performance.
