A lovely interview with Jamie MacDougall on BBC Radio for the Classics Unwrapped Programme, amongst the chat you can hear the final movement of the Glass Quartet, the sixth Children's Song by Chick Corea and Toledo by Ralph Towner.

Love seeing the Ralph Towner in there!! I play If, Reluctant, Always, Green and Golden, ...., some of his newer Duo work. Wish we saw more of his stuff interpreted in the CG community.

Absolutely agree and coincidentally a review just arrived in my inbox today saying exactly the same thing.

Review in Classical Guitar Magazine.

"With this record, McAllister makes a solid case that great music by these prominent composers has been waiting patiently for an advocate in the classical guitar world." Mark Small - Classical Guitar Magazine.

I love what I’ve heard of this so far. I have to admit that I’ve been binge watching all of your videos on YouTube while on vacation this week. I’m about to order a bunch of your records. Can’t wait.

I let a friend of mine listen to the Philip Glass reworkings on American Collection and he used them for his grandmother's final journey last weekend - so even though a little somber I think its great people are being inspired by this wonderful guitar music.
I liked the opera very much. Everything but the music.
