Copland, Concerto:

Rossini, Variations for Clarinet and Small Orchestra in C, Op. 109:

"I imagine a talk with Gary Gray would be a rewarding experience. If his clarinet playing is a guide, he would be a perfect conversationalist, as ready to listen as to contribute a well-turned phrase. The jazzy wit of Copland and the urbane good humor of Arnold both benefit from Gray's subtle artistry."
—Which Compact Disc Magazine

"A gifted colorist, this soloist exhibits with rare intelligence his instrument's large palette of sonorities, particularly in the Dance Preludes of Lutoslawski. Gray is a musician who deserves our special attention."
—Diapason Magazine, France

"Gray's tender and varied version of the Copland Concerto gives equal prominence to the work's lyric spans and its more obvious jazz's a terrific recording."
—Los Angeles Times
