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"

PROGRAM NOTES:  

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!
