Ba-Da-Boom Brass - A new initiative from Superbrass Music. This collection of 30 original compositions and arrangements has been 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 four 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.
Latin-American music is a global phenomenon. On the one hand there is music that is simply Latin in style (the musical pot-pourri of Salsa can be found here) or on the other hand there are the national trends (Brazil-Samba, Cuba-Son, Argentina-Tango etc.). At the heart of all these it is the rhythmic pulse and drive that gives the music its own unique identity. Make sure you get your dance moves sorted or you might stamp on Eduardo’s Toe.
