In other people's words...

“On the most recent project of mine, Derek was really put to the test; not only with a large scale and tight deadlined project, but also with varying orchestral sizes and lineups.  His ability to execute an 80 piece orchestral arrangement  one day and a 20 piece big band arrangement the next, and conduct and relate personally to both groups when necessary meant he was indeed an invaluable asset to this project.”

Guy Gross
Film Composer, Frauds feature film (1993) & Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)
