Bryan Cumming was raised in Georgia in a musical family, playing Dixieland jazz and singing harmony on Beatles songs. After playing saxophone in the army, he toured and recorded with Martin Mull. His first ASCAP credit was "Do the Dog," an instrumental co-written with Mull, released as a single on Capricorn Records in 1976.

While in L.A., he recorded, toured and appeared in videos with artists including Al Jarreau, Maria Muldaur, The Ohio Players, David Soul, Supertramp, Anne Murray, Al Kooper and the Pointer Sisters. As a member of Billy Vera and the Beaters, he played on the number one single "At This Moment." He played lead guitar for ShaNaNa four years. With Jason Blume, he co-wrote "I Had A Heart" in 1987 which hit #2 on the Cashbox Independent Country singles chart. Moving to Nashville in 1988, he toured with K.T.Oslin and Cleve Francis. His songs have been recorded by Jim & the Animal Band (children's music,) Jim Robinson (Christian pop,) Ken Holloway (positive country), and Swan Dive (jazzy pop,) among others.

Kathryn Gallagher

a mixed milieu
The recording is slightly amateurish for someone who has a long history of performing professionally. The mixture of music and spoken word were grating especially when the acting was of such poor quality. The use of snippets of music was irritating. They are meant to be used as devices for helping to move the play along but unless you were well versed in the play they would have no significant meaning. I was very disappointed.

Karol Cooper

Beautiful music!
Enjoyed the Nashville Shakespeare Festival and hearing the music on the CD that was performed there. A great presentation of the play accompanied by Cumming's skilled musicianship. Looking forward to hearing more of Cumming's work produced independently of the Shakespeare folks. HAVE to hear more of that sax!

Sheila Randolph

Shakespeare would have loved it
The tracks stand alone, yet are enfused with two important things, artistry and talent. This is not your normal music, but then Shakespeare was not your normal playwright. Music that does justice to him would need to be just what Cumming gives us; elegant, professional, romantic and unique. Add Cumming's Dixielandish Ragtime and I am certain of one thing; Shakespeare would have loved it.
