Reviews

Vacant Lot Sessions is a collection of two marching drum line works used by the Star of Indiana in 1993. Written for snare line, tenors, and five bass drums, the two pieces are ''Star '93'' (a cadence) and "Red's Rhumba" (which may be used as a warm-up). Of the two, "Red's Rhumba" is the more challenging, It begins in 9/16 time but frequently shifts into 10/16, 12/16, 11/16 and 6/16. Both pieces are rhythmically dense and utilize thirty-second notes and a variety of different strokes (ping, stick-shot, crush, crossover, dampened, unison, and rimshots). This is an example of drumline writing for the modem corps.
