Green-Xylophonia arr. Becker (SP)-X/4M - Product Information

Xylophonia was published in 1925 by the Leedy Manufacturing Company as a xylophone solo with piano accompaniment. Although it was written in the 1920's, Xylophonia is something of a throwback to the style of xylophone solos from the previous two decades. This is the Bob Becker arrangement played by Nexus.

    The oldest of the Green brothers, Joseph Peter, was born in Omaha, Nebraska on February 9, 1892, fifteen months before his more famous younger brother, George Hamilton Green. He died on October 16, 1939, at the age of 47.

    Joseph not only played the xylophone, but (unlike George) he was also an excellent drummer. He studied with timpanist Joseph Zettelman of the Chicago Symphony. Joe's early career included stints with Sousa's band and with the Victor Talking Machine Company as a sessions man.

    Comments:

    The Bob Becker arrangement of this piece, (Xylophonia) has been , and always will be a crowd favorite at anypercussion ensemble concert. Especially when this arrangement is played as Nexus originally recorded it, (with the extra percussion parts, and duck call solo).
