Description

This terrific showstopper comes from the musical revue Ain't Misbehavin’, co-written by Waller, Harry Brooks, Andy Razaf and others. This musical is a tribute to the black musicians of the 1920s and 1930s who were part of the Harlem Renaissance, an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness and ethnic pride. It was a time when Manhattan nightclubs like the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were the playgrounds of high society and were filled with piano players banging out the newest tunes in a swing style.

“Every now and again a recording that is both truly outstanding and will have great appeal to brass band listeners appears on the shelves. We are delighted to make it the first recipient of our CD of the Year Editors Award.”

Kenneth Crookston
British Bandsman

“Under the Spell of Spain is a showcase of virtuosic playing by some of London’s finest brass and percussion players. Highly recommended!”

“The arrangements all sound fresh, and the playing is beyond reproach.”
