Some comments:  

A great friend and marimba busy of mine, Larissa Venzie said:  "I really hope people have the sense to purchase all this newer music from you. I think they’re the perfect combination of meaty, pretty, and satisfying to play without being ridiculous marimba Olympics or too avant-garde, you know?  LV 

Another great friend of mine, Adam Blackstock recently commented on a tour to Ukraine, "Your music captures the true voice of the instrument and allows the marimba to possess tangible emotions. No one else is close. Just ask the folks in Ukraine! They went fucking NUTS for your music. I played One Last Breath, Beads, Whatever’s More, Wood that Sings, Mexican Dances, and Rumble Strips. They were blown away. Four encores later, they let me sit down. ' AB

Recently, Mike Minarcek said about Never Less The Same:  I was taken by how the motifs relate to one another and how there's a forward propelled groove despite meter changes, etc....that is never less the same. It really does flow and I just love the harmonies.  Thanks, Mike!

One of Stout's more recent compositions, from 2019, written for Yurika Kimura. For 4/3 marimba. Not a virtuostic piece technically, but one that requires excellent musicianship and artistry to bring the music to life. It is on my Youtube channel at: https://youtu.be/gK7CAXnR3Pg. Please listen with headphones, as always.
