John J. Puccio
Classical Candor, December 2016

Still’s symphony displays elements of blues, minstrel, ragtime, and Southern folk tunes, all fundamentally American idioms. The composer structured it in a traditional four-movement layout, with a big opening reminiscent of Rhapsody in Blue or Porgy and Bess, followed by a lovely Adagio, a brief but rousing Scherzo, and a surprisingly subdued but noble finale, all of which Maestro Freeman and ensemble play to perfection. © 2016 Classical Candor Read complete review

Victor Carr Jr, November 2001

I’m happy to say Volume 1 makes for a strong start.

Freeman and his band give vibrant performances of the Coleridge-Taylor works…playing with much more relaxed authenticity and “cool”. Cedille’s recording is a model of three-dimensional realism, making this disc both a sonic and musical treasure. © 2001 Read complete review
