The Twelve Gallon Hat

Commissioned by the Pensacola Civic Band

In honor of Mr. Don Snowden’s Twenty-fifth Season as Conductor


On the CD

"A Few Notes Between Friends"


Fond of western television and film  music like Bonanza, Silverado, City Slickers, The Magnificent Seven

and many, many others, I decided to compose a work as a tribute to my favorites. It is a wild ride to be certain

with double tonguing faster than any 6 shooter and woodwind runs flying across the page like tumbleweed.

Tie yourself into the saddle and hang on for this fast and furious romp across the wild, wild, wild west!
