Gadsden - a three-movement suite for saxophone quartet was written as part of my studies at the University of South Carolina. At the time the fur saxophonists for whom I wrote the piece wee all sharing a large house on Gadsden street (hence the title).


The printed music includes a counting system shorthand I found (and still find) useful, PM me and I will share that with you.


Each of the three movements stands well alone as a concert piece.


Gadsden is published by Ken Dorn Music Press:

The recordings of the three movements are studio “rough mixes” of the Chicago Sax Quartet, who recorded it as part of an educational project that unfortunately fell through.
