Much South African Township music carries a very buoyant, energetic drive about it. However, at the same time there are ballads and lullabies that have a simplistic casual grace about them. I t is this latter style that I have attempted to convey in this composition. Imagine an African sunset….J.M.

Description

Part of a collection of thirty original compositions and arrangements entitled Ba-Da-Boom Brass.

Inspired by the heritage and culture of world and historical brass-related styles.

We hope this repertoire will prompt a growing inquisitiveness for brass players of all ages and styles and was created with a brass club or gathering in mind.

Set at a moderate / training band standard, these pieces can be played by a flexi group of mixed brass instruments plus assorted optional percussion.

A minimum of 4 brass players is necessary, but the maximum is limitless.

All 4 brass voices have occasional divisi passages; in these instances more texture and harmonic colour is added.

In the instance of using just four brass players, playing just the top part in each case will provide a cohesive performance.

“Under the Spell of Spain defies any category other than: superb.”

"The more I listen to this album the more I find to enjoy and the more impressed I am. The wealth of talent on display in terms of composing, performing, recording and producing is fantastic"

“The entire programme can be likened to a sumptuous feast, with each track having its own highly delectable and thoroughly satisfying flavour. The CD is surely compulsive listening for all brass and percussion enthusiasts.”

C Brian Buckley

“This is joyous stuff; an intelligent, coherent crossover disc, performed with phenomenal punch. Brilliantly recorded too – what’s the point of assembling a collective of virtuoso brass players if they can’t make your ears bleed ?”
