Doug Hammond fulfilled a life-long dream with a tentet. With this “Dream Team,” the drummer and composer presented his wild “Roots & New Dreams” at the Linz Brucknerhaus. Prior to that, the “Brückenköpfe Ensemble” of the Bruckner University bestowed their honor upon Hammond. His picturesque “Black Forest Suite,” gracefully arranged by Christoph Cech and perkily served up by students, showed the other side of the American. Much applause.
