This original marimba trio is fun, laid-back, and faintly reminiscent of familiar childhood melodies. Played on one instrument, Home by Sundown includes a few moments of choreographed humor among its variety of lilting musical moments. Adventurous performers could choose to make more of these, but be careful--it's easy to lose track of time on this carefree jaunt down memory lane and you don't want to miss curfew. Home by Sundown comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and a recording.
