Welcome to the New Superbrass Music Publishing initiative - First Access Brass (FAB) The aim of this particular resource is to give ‘First Access’ beginner brass players the opportunity to participate in meaningful rehearsals and performances alongside a more experienced brass ensemble, comprising more able and senior students or even professional musicians. The educational benefits and inspiration an experience such as this provides is immeasurable. With a strong rhythmic slant, each piece seeks to capture a particular style or mood, whilst still being accessible to beginner students and extremely fun to play. Crucially, each title began life exclusively as a ‘First Access’ melody or riff, with the more ‘senior’ ensemble material being added to supplement this. Each piece comprises parts in all transpositions, for the more experienced brass dectet accompanied by an essential drum kit, alongside an across-the-board line-up of beginner parts for all brass instruments in all varieties of transpositions

Description

Evokes the sounds, rhythms and harmonies of the ever popular Balkan Brass Bands.

“Under the Spell of Spain is an extraordinary CD, in company with the finest large brass ensemble recordings ever made. This is a must buy CD!”

Don Lucas
Boston University writing in the International Trombone Association Journal

“Many recordings over the last few decades have demonstrated the superb quality of British brass playing; 'Under the Spell of Spain' will rightfully take its place among them.”

Paul Sarcich

“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 ?”

Graham Rickson

"WOW !!!!! all of you should be locked up !!!! What great stuff - the compositions/arrangements, the playing (OUTRAGEOUS !!! ), everything is simply fantastic. (actually - i couldn't have expected anything less ! ) Many, many thanks to you and all for your superb contributions. yet again, you've managed to raise the bar! (an inch or two is ok but a few yards is really unfair !!!!!!!!!! )"

Jiggs Whigham
