UW CSE Ph.D. alum Kevin Hinshaw blows his own horn

The Stranger reviews Orkestar Zirkonium’s new album “Too Hot for Sleep”:

“Orkestar Zirkonium is a 13-piece marching band with bouncy tuba rhythms, circus-y horn flourishes, and a killer clarinetist ([UW CSE Ph.D. alum] Kevin Hinshaw) who sounds like he’s been airlifted from a concert of Rhapsody in Blue and dropped into a Bulgarian brass band playing around a campfire.”
