The Cannonball Band Premieres Gordon Goodwin Composition


Cannonball Musical Instruments has released the premier recording of a new Gordon Goodwin composition. “Cannonball Run” was commissioned by Cannonball and written by Goodwin for five saxophones and rhythm section. To show their company is truly run by musicians, Cannonball management and staff performed the recording: Tevis Laukat, President (soprano); Randal Clark, Alto/Soprano Specialist (alto); Ryan Lillywhite, Tenor/Baritone Specialist (tenor); Daron Bradford, Clarinet/Flute Specialist (baritone). They are joined by Dr. Ray Smith, Cannonball Artist and Professor of Saxophone at Brigham Young University. The fast-paced samba features solos from each saxophonist as well as an intense soli section, and showcases both the talent of the Cannonball team and the rich sound of Cannonball saxophones.   While at the studio, The Cannonball Band was joined by Cannonball Trumpet staff members Ryan Laukat and Howard Summers, who will be featured on future releases … so stay tuned for more very soon!!
