Karl Lozier of Positive Feedback gives new Dallas Wind Symphony release Playing With Fire: Music By Frank Ticheli a rave review:
“Many listeners need to know about this gem of a recording…you are going to like it at first listen. Make certain that you read along with the fine liner notes that explain what and why it sounds like it does. In the first composition, another conductor had Ticheli compose an appropriate short and feisty musical celebration of his mother’s life, remembering her always as feisty not sad or tearful memories…To top it all off superbly, the last few selections feature a truly traditional jazz band; I mean that if Louis Satchmo Armstrong was still around, he would want to play in the Jim Cullen Band…”
