Popsicle Rocket Sunrise reflects on happy childhood memories of summer with bicycles and popsicles. Still Life with Melon & Sand evokes the hot stillness of a summer beach, with the quiet interrupted by a frantic chase scene of young children running around. Red Cherry Lark exudes more summer fun and exuberance.

"Beautiful and pensive - it occupies a unique expressive and emotional space in the trumpet repertoire. The great modern works are inaccessible to anyone with regular skills on the instrument. Summer Suite offers us intriguing lines to play through with rare opportunities to be intimate and thoughtful." - Matt Burke (Manchester, UK).

"This is largely lyric music, both lovely and poetic, ... The open and soaring melodies remind this reviewer of Copland and Hovhaness." - John Falskow, ITG Journal, March 2013.
