Baritone Saxophonist, Brian Landrus is in the middle of producing a new album. It will be a concerto for the baritone saxophone, featuring a complete orchestra (in the classical sense, not the colloquial term for a big-band). Brian is an adventurous musician, writer and a great player – and this album will feature him playing in an orchestral setting with a vast number of genres blended and utilized. You can join his project at ArtistShare and follow along with the progress of the project and receive the final recording when its done. I’m really looking forward to hearing the end result and have another piece of repertoire for baritone saxophone. Click here to see Brian’s project.
