The final Sowash piece was just some good, old-fashioned fun. If Jimmy Buffet and Dixieland had a baby, it would be Mr. Sowash’s arrangement of “What Child is This?” The orchestra began with the simple main theme with some chromatic undertones, then broke off into a bass riff, drums and Mr. Sowash on piano with a Havana/tropical-inspired section that culminated in one giant jazz explosion. - Nicole Fowles for Delaware Gazette.
