Rich DeRosa releases CD That Music Always Round Me

A new CD that Rich DeRosa has been working on intermittently for the past two years will finally be released this month. It is called That Music Always Round Me. Garry Dial and Dick Oatts are the composers of the project. They created music set to 15 poems by Walt Whitman. DeRosa was commissioned to create the arrangements for the various choirs that accompany their jazz group. During the first week in July, the WDR big band will record Rich DeRosa's arrangements of 10 compositions by legendary jazz bassist Ron Carter. Carter will also be recording with the band.
