Description

The Youngblood Brass Band is a brass band from Oregon, Wisconsin in the USA. It was started by students at Oregon High School in 1995 (Nat McIntosh - Sousaphone and David Henzie-Skogen - Lyrics & Snare Drum), when they were known as the One Lard Biskit Brass Band. The name changed to YBB in 1998. After releasing their first album Better Recognize locally, they tour consistently in the United States and Europe and in 2005 released a live album entitled Live. Places. on their Layered Music record label, from which the track Brooklyn was featured. The YBB combines the inspiration they took from the traditional New Orleans brass band sound with influences from jazz music, improvised music, a decidedly punk ethos and a strong hip hop component. Focusing on tight ensemble playing and pushing the boundaries beyond the traditional genre allowed them to provide solid backing for Skogen's rapping and McIntosh's virtuosic sousaphone work

“All cleverly arranged and beautifully played, with excellent sonics.”

John Sunier
Audiophile Audition

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

Jon Gorrie
Founder, BrassMusician.com

“The end result, is a resounding success. This is not a commercial CD, this is education, passion and self belief written in the sleeve notes”

Richard Walker
British Trombone Society

“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

“One of the finest brass ensemble recordings that has ever come my way.”

Rodney Newton
