5.0 out of 5 stars A New Deal for Music Lovers May 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The music of Samuel Jones represents a distinctive voice in the American symphonic tradition. Though expressive, his is not a shrill voice screaming agonized wails over the crisis d'jour; though intelligent, this is not the drone of an academic serving up sonic algebra for other academics. The music of Samuel Jones grows from the same soil that nourished composers like Harris, Ives, Copland, and Barber. This is a seasoned voice, deep and assured, that celebrates timeless questions at the same time that it sings of the here and now.
Samuel Jones wrote "Roundings: Musings and Meditations on Texas New Deal Murals" for the Amarillo Symphony's seventy-fifth anniversary season. "Roundings" is a symphonic suite in seven movements: (1) "Prologue: Hymn to the Earth," (2) "Windmill," (3) "Oil Well," (4) "Locomotive," (5) "Lariat," (6) "Plow," and (7) "Epilogue: To everything there is a season." Each tool represented in the titles features circular motion of some kind. As the composer describes it in the liner notes of the CD: "Each movement of 'Roundings' takes its point of departure from one of the public murals created during the Depression era under the auspices of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal.... The title of the suite refers not only to the circular motions depicted in each of the murals, but also to the large cycles represented in life itself."
The entire piece lasts 41'01" with individual movements lasting between 2 and 8 minutes. The movements have been programmed as stand-alone pieces as well as movements in the suite; each one, like New Deal art itself, features bold colors and clear outlines. The harmonic language is tonal and rich.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, personal music January 2, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
My daughter and I enjoyed part of Roundings at a Seattle Symphony concert last fall. We were thrilled when Samuel Jones stood up from the audience to acknowledge his talent as a composer. I'm from a farm family and have always loved the hymn We Plow the Fields and Scatter. Dr. Jones uses the hymn tune (which unfortunately has disappeared from our hymn book) in the section Plow. The Seattle Symphony sounded better than the Amarillo but maybe it was just the wonderful sound in Benaroya Hall.
The cello sonata is also wonderful. This CD is a real bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naxos wins again! November 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Klaus Heymann and Naxos have shown themselves to truly be the world's leading classical music label. In terms of sheer repertoire, they can't be beat. Their devotion to American music is praiseworthy.

Samuel Jones is a composer solidly in the American tradition of Copland and Harris. He is a very skillful composer, and unlike many composers, seems to excell in both program music (such as Roundings) and abstract music (such his Cello Sonata). I enjoyed every minute of this disc, and to anyone who loves American music, I urge you to purchase it.

The playing of the Amarillo Symphony is quite wonderful. The city of Amarillo and Maestro James Setapen is to be praised for putting together such a wonderful ensemble.
