In mid-February 2011, the Reg Vardy Band (www.regvardyband.co.uk) will be recording a CD of the music of Dean Goffin. All the proceeds from the recording will be going to the Clarence Adoo Trust (www.clarence.org.uk). The track list is all but completed, and it can be confirmed that the 2008 revision of My Strength, My Tower (by Brian Bowen for the 2nd Section Finals) will be given what is thought to be its first studio recording, and Richard Martin (renowned former SA cornetist and now Principal Trumpet of the Northern Sinfonia) will perform Victorious. KMJ Recordings (www.kmjrecordings.com) will be undertaking the recording duties. This is the first time it has recorded for the trust and its first project with the current North of England Champion band. Goffin has never had a CD devoted to his music and this was seen as a great opportunity to celebrate some his best-known works, while featuring some his lesser-known, but equally superb material. This thread is intended to give people a chance to talk about the music and life of a great musician. Do you have a favourite Goffin work? Have you played under him or met him? Is there a piece of his that you would love to hear recorded again? Any memorable performances of his music that come to mind?
