    Cowboys Meet the Maestro

    A well intergrated blend of a metropolitan orchestra fused with true cowboys whose hearts live in the old west. Wonderful arrangements of old time favorite western tunes brought to life by the magical blend of strings and horns. The music of balladeer Don Edward, par excellance, and the home on the range poetry of that old bard Waddie Mitchell lets your imagination take you on journeys you never would have thought possible in the year 2000. They transport you back into to era of wonderment, hope, and the free spiritness that won the west. I must admit, I could have stood a larger dose of the wonderment, hope, and free spiritness, but the collaboration of the orchestra and our cowboys is both music to the ears and tonic for the soul
