“Desperate Attitudes” is already accepted and established as a standard repertoire work. This says it all: In its first year of existence, “Desperate Attitudes” was performed by many of the top college percussion ensembles in the USA. “In your face” mallet parts with a really “urban” edge, but it also has tremendous lyrical and harmonic impact. Should be in every college percussion ensemble library. Spiral-bound score.
