Lawrence A. Johnson of Chicago Classical Review interviews Gordon Getty on the occasion of Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra's performance of Getty's "Overture to Plump Jack." 

“I think that it attracts attention, which is a good thing,” said Getty, 79, from his home in San Francisco. “It may be baleful attention, which is a bad thing,” he added with a laugh. “All in all, on the whole it’s been a help.”

On November 14, David Danzmayr leads the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of excerpts from Plump Jack in Frankfort, Illinois.
