Aaron Z Snyder

Rediscovered composer!

The recorded sound isn't wonderful (sources from acetates, 1950s), but the music is outstanding! James Stevens is still very much alive and composing, but has been sadly ignored over the years due, in part, to a falling out he had with the BBC near 50 years ago! His music varies between the easily accessible and rather gritty, but it's all a single, quirky, and always fascinating voice that comes through. Two of his more recent compositions, in modern sound, are also available through Pristine, and both deserve wide distribution.
