OLD COMRADES: a classic CD revisited The Northshore Concert Band has been active for sixty years and John Paynter was the founder and conductor from 1957 to 1995. This fine adult concert band still exists today and The Paynter Years showcases nearly forty years of fine performances. The works include Tulsa (Gillis/Ford), Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral (Wagner/Caillet), Merry Music (Frigyes) and more. Included is Capriccio for Saxophone Quartet and Band (Warren Barker); a work commissioned by Paynter and the Northshore Concert Band. This recording is an excellent tribute to one of concert band’s legendary figures.
