Strange Dreams (2001) is made up of four vignettes for alto saxophone and marimba, based on short stories by artist/writer Brian Andreas. The four stories were extracted from two of his books - Still Mostly True and Strange Dreams, from which the title is derived.
"Strange Dreams nicely blends the sounds and musical strengths of the saxophone and marimba. The world could use more strange dreams like this!"
- Terry O'Mahoney, Percussive Notes (April 2003)
