University of North Texas, 2017, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: Rich Derosa is the director of composition and arranging at The University of North Texas.“Perseverance“is a collection of his work including a few arrangements of classics all performed by various UNT Lab bands. Derosa is a highly regarded composer in and outside of the University having done work for Wynton Marsalis, New York Pops, Portland Symphony Pops, Swedish Television and Radio Orchestra and many others. Things get a little spacey on “Fugue For Thought” but otherwise this is a vibrant compilation documented with excellent liner notes.
