"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7
Fandango, the title track of this CD was performed by Philip and Joseph on the national PBS broadcast of NYP Maestro Masur's 75th Birthday concert. On this CD you will also hear Phil perform Turrin's 2nd trumpet concerto, "Chronicles" and Steve Gryc's "Evensong". NYP Principal Trombone, Joseph Alessi is also heard in solos with the University of New Mexico Wind Symphony. "Solo recordings by...trumpeter Philip Smith...and trombonist Joseph Alessi...are among the best ever made for their instruments, and this fits right in. Both players have exemplary tone qualities (full, round, and warm), power to spare, great technique, facility in all registers, and interpretive insight. They are well matched, and it's good to hear them play together in...Turrin's colorful and entertaining 'Fandango'..." -Kilpatrick, ARG
