I wrote this piece on a commission from John Parks. The piece is a reflection of the great times that John and I had rafting down the Boise River and is inspired by the great friendship that John and I share. John and I premiered it at Florida State University in the fall of 2003 and we later recorded it for his CD, Dusk: Percussion Music from the Heartland.
Listen to an mp3 of Vertical River with John Parks, marimba and Blake Tyson, vibraphone.
