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.

  • Part 1 – Trumpet / Cornet in Bb
  • Part 2 – Trumpet / Cornet in Bb
  • Part 3 – Horn in Eb or F / Trombone / Baritone / Euphonium
  • Part 4 – Trombone / Baritone / Euphonium / Bass Trombone / Tuba
  • (8va options for Bass Trombone & Tuba)
  • Assorted optional percussion - prioritise drum kit

Description

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.

“Stunning playing all round and a perfect 'snapshot' of the incredibly high standards of performance in brass playing in London today."

Peter Bassano
Head of Brass Royal College of Music (retired)

“Exploding onto the brass music scene with their debut album ‘Under the Spell of Spain’, the depth of versatility and virtuosity within the ranks of Superbrass has firmly secured it's place as one of the greatest large brass ensembles of all time”

Tom Davoren

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