Metroplex Composed by Robert Sheldon. For Concert Band. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 24669, UPC: 038081268248)

As the title states, Metroplex is a single, modern-sounding work in three distinct sections. The first conveys an image of the New York skyline with its towering skyscrapers and concrete canyons. The second is full of jazz-influenced writing and inflection depicting the urban jazz scene and the city's famous jazz clubs. The final section takes us on a wild taxi ride through the heavy traffic of the bustling city, its harmonic and rhythmic devices reminiscent of Leonard Bernstein's score for West Side Story. One of the finest releases this year. Don't miss the chance for your students to perform this fantastic, contemporary work!
