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

This is an example of early Jazz music and builds on the Ragtime style that preceded it. King Oliver himself was a cornet player, jazz band leader and composer. Being based in the city of New Orleans his band was one of the earliest groups to be recorded; taking advantage of the new possibilities as technology advanced. Significantly, the second cornet player in King Oliver’s band was no other than a young Louis Armstrong. Louis Armstrong would become one of the most important figures in the history of jazz music.

“Another impressive offering then from Superbrass, and a worthy successor to their excellent debut disc”
