Cantor Scamper, Russ Carere

Cantor Scamper is a tribute to a favorite presenter in the Pittsburg area, Owen Cantor. His non-stop, energy and drive is represented in this fast-paced music by Russ's use of double tonging technique.

The beautiful melody in Danny Girl represents the slow thoughtful music of ragtime ballads. Read more »
