Under the auspices of a commission by Director Scott Guidry's Lafayette High School Symphonic Band of Lafayette, Louisiana, David Holsinger has completed Graysondance, his third and final installment of the "children's dances" -compositions that pay tribute to the diverse personalities of his offspring. Like its predecessors, Havendance and Nilesdance, we find in this composition, the exuberant rhythms and mixed metered enthusiasm we expect, but fused with a vigorous allusion to "big band jazz"! Graysondance seems to ride forward on splashy riffs, driving bass lines, and punchy spikes of harmony! And does this fit the kid? Well, Grayson started clarinet this year in beginning band and wears out the family's ears playing Benny Goodman albums. His Dad is not going to complain, however. It could be a whole lot worse! What if he listened to something called "Convoluted Twisted Head-lice Mongers"?!?!?
