In September 2007, Mr. Sprott made his Carnegie Hall solo debut performing Lars Erik-Larsson's Concertino in Weill Recital Hall at the invitation of the Bulgarian Consulate.

Wonderful New CD!
Mr. Sprott demonstrates true virtuosic musicianship on his new CD! His interpretations are musically sensative, and he demonstrates technical precision of the highest caliber. This is a must have for any music library. Bravo!

Joshua Popejoy

a must have.
This is a fantastic album! The musicality, clarity, and consistency are top notch. It's so nice to now have amazing recordings of some trombone standards (Casterede, Pryor- Starlight Caprice, Uber romance) that had been previously overlooked. Everyone, from professionals, to students, to music aficionados should own this CD.
