Description

GurNalon Ishq Mitha (Love is Sweeter Than Sugar) Many artists lay claim to this song, but its roots lie deep in the Punjabi folk tradition. It now takes its place as one of the most popular of all Bollywood songs. Whist covered by a very wide range of Indian artists, the enduring version is that of Bally Sagoo.

Jock McKenzie studied trumpet at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester where he was a joint recipient of the college’s concerto prize. Since 1987 Jock has based his musical career in Hampshire, working as a freelance trumpeter, conductor, composer, arranger and brass teacher. Currently Jock holds the position of Professional Leader (Brass) for Hampshire Music Service and is the Director of the Hampshire County Youth Band. It is the mix of all of these musical roles that has led to Jock establishing a reputation as a leading creator of brass music resources, particularly in the field of education and brass ensemble music.
