Now available: "One More Dance"

"On the light side are Michael Garson’s ‘Jazz Variations on a Theme by Paganini’ and JB Arban’s ubiquitous ‘Carnival of Venice’. Although McCaslin calls his arrangement ‘Just Another Carnival’, it’s not—there are lots of little changes of harmony and a couple of big changes of variations, including one with an amazing articulation trick he calls “rutter tonguing”. -American Record Guide

 

"An explosive mix of good and fresh new music for tuba....musicianship and artistry at the highest level, a must in every tuba library!"

- Sérgio Carolino, Principal Tuba Porto Symphony Orchestra

"McCaslin's technical abilities are brilliant and his musicianship is inspiring. Let's hope that he continues to be a tubist's Indiana Jones searching for lost and new treasures around the world for our repertoire!"

-Dr. T. J. Ricer, University of Hawaii at Manoa.
