    The Heritage Series, Volume 2 - Heavenly Gales is a compilation of cornet solos by former principal cornet and bandmaster of the NYSB, Derek Smith.

    I received my copy on Friday and can recommend this release which doesn't appear to have received too much publicity. It is listed on the New York Staff Band website (not on WoB as yet) and includes among others Tucker, Songs in the Heart, The Challenge, Rhapsody on Negro Spirituals and Wonderful Words (performed with Philip). It also includes the title track performed with the former Rosehill Band. This is an excellent example of Derek's artistry over many years.
