Reviews

Parking Lot Etudes is a collection of five works for unaccompanied drum line, suitable for either a drum feature or as cadences to accompany movement of the band on or off the field.  Each four- to five-minute etude is written for a snare drum line, tenor line (using quints), and five bass drums.  Most of the pieces are written in a straight-forward march style with some occasional twists (meter change, split parts, special stickings).  The etudes are written for accomplished percussionists; tempos (M.M. = 120-138), accent patterns, rhythms (sextuplets, septuplets), meter changes (4/4, 15/16), and the rhythmic accuracy required of the bass line are very demanding.  The snare and tenor lines include many specialty strokes (rimshots, buzz rolls, crush rolls, cross-overs, muted rimshots, and performing on a neighbor's drum).  A college-level percussion section could give each of these works a satisfying reading.
