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!
