This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Jim Casella July 21, 2018

The third season of “Last Chance U” appeared on Netflix yesterday, I’ve yet to watch it but will watch when time allows. It’s title sequence is “Spice Mon” by Jim Casella performed by the East Mississippi Community College drumlin. Casella is a composer and percussion specialist.
I was at a concert earlier this year where there was a number of percussion pieces and I really enjoyed them. Aside from the Drum Solos in various Metal bands live performances, pure percussion is an area that’s often neglected, bar of course the 12th of July etc.

Some lovely stuff here IEL. I was thinking about what you were saying about how percussion is in some ways restricted in music – and it’s an odd contradiction, dance and pop and other forms rest on percussion but can seem largely uninterested in exploring it (though there are notable exceptions).
