However the most memorable and significant piece on this disc is, for this listener, ‘Cosmic Echoes’ by the young American composer, Jonathan Leshnoff. This is one of the most imaginative and compelling works for trumpet and organ that I have ever heard, and ought to be widely known by trumpeters everywhere. There is a haunting quality about it that will ever remain with me.
