Terry Vosbein CD Reviewed on All About Jazz

The new CD, “Fleet Street,” featuring Washington and Lee music professor Terry Vosbein’s compositions of the music from the Stephen Sondheim musical “Sweeney Todd” merited a review on the website, All About Jazz. The review, originally from JazzWax, described the music as “a superb reworking and a throwback to an age of introspective interpretation.” Vosbein not only composed the music, but he also conducted the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra’s performance. According to the review, “The immediate beauty of Fleet Street is that it never bogs down in somber neo-classical configurations. From the start, Fleet Street swings, zig-zags and constantly catches your ear before shifting into new territory. And it’s big. There are 20 musicians here-five saxophones, five trombones, five trumpets and a five-piece rhythm section.”
