Banana/Dump Truck

Fred Sherry, cello; Boston Modern Orchestra Project conducted by Gil Rose

Every possible way to introduce a soloist in a concerto has been done to death, so why not just verbally introduce him? That’s what Steve Mackey asks conductor Gil Rose of BMPT to do with cellist Fred Sherry in his zany Banana Dump Truck which also features some really cool percussion writing. Filling out the CD are his now trademark prog-rock saturated electric guitar forays both with Cherry and BMOP.
