Roger May is the NSC’s Composer-in-Residence and his Simon’s Mangrove Groove is a masterpiece of writing for the group. Superb! Sax Circus, the title track, also by May, is a virtuoso comedic piece; knowing what the NSC is capable of in the terpsichorean department this is one they ought to put on a DVD.
