Through his innovating scoring techniques, imaginative use of the instruments, and masterful ear for color and texture, Merlin Patterson has created some of the greatest symphonic wind transcriptions in all of band literature. He is truly without peer as a band arranger. Eddie Green

Merlin Patterson is undoubtedly one of the finest transcribers of all time. His transcriptions are thoroughly faithful to the composer’s original intent, and meticulously edited. Additionally, his gifted scoring is attentive to transparency and fully employs the wide spectrum of color possibilities of the wind band. James Keene
