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

Jelly Roll Morton was one of the very first composers and performers of Jazz music. In turn, he and his band the Red Hot Peppers were some of the very first musicians to be recorded. At the height of the band’s popularity, the ability to record music had only just been developed sufficiently to make this possible. Kansas City Stomp is a typical example of Jelly Roll Morton’s style. Originally created at the piano and using typical Ragtime techniques (he himself was an accomplished piano player), Jelly Roll would then orchestrate the piece to include brass, woodwind and rhythm section instruments.

It is scintillatingly good. Superbrass more than live up to their name.”

“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.”
