David K. Bakken’s sextet Capitol Investment is a no-nonsense, hassle-free, easy-to-use piece, devoid of any down-payments, surcharges, or finder’s fees. Plus, at 0% interest, it’s a great way for young investors to enter the market; simple enough for beginning students to achieve but just enough variety to hold their interest. Capitol Investment is dedicated to George V. LeyVa Middle School Percussion Ensemble from San Jose, CA. It is also named after the Capitol Expressway, a major road near the middle school. Capitol Investment comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts for printing as well as a full audio recording.
