 RE: Copland Concerto

The Stoltzman recording of the Copland concerto is excellent. Benny Goodman's various recordings are also very fine, the best of which is I think the original mono LP, which has never been reissued. The world premiere live performance is reissued from time to time, with Goodman and the NBC Symphony conducted by Fritz Reiner, but it's dreadful. Stick to the one on Columbia Masterworks 42227.

My favorite, though, is by William Blount with the Orchestra of St. Luke's on BMG/Musicmasters MUMA-0007005. He's an excellent jazz player as well as a classical player with a very smooth technique, and he gets the mixture just right. I was in the West Point Band with him many years ago. A top player and very nice fellow.

Best regards.
