With a progressive musicality complimented by a ballsy, throwback sound, Dr. Salles has earned his title several times over as both creative soloist and innovative composer. We love him for his precision woodwinds, searing tone, and soloistic aggression, on display on the orchestra's dynamic cover of alone together, and the ever raging protest. We also, just for the record, feel strongly that his advanced degree significantly ups our street cred.
