Welcome to the New Superbrass Music Publishing initiative - First Access Brass (FAB) The aim of this particular resource is to give ‘First Access’ beginner brass players the opportunity to participate in meaningful rehearsals and performances alongside a more experienced brass ensemble, comprising more able and senior students or even professional musicians. The educational benefits and inspiration an experience such as this provides is immeasurable. With a strong rhythmic slant, each piece seeks to capture a particular style or mood, whilst still being accessible to beginner students and extremely fun to play. Crucially, each title began life exclusively as a ‘First Access’ melody or riff, with the more ‘senior’ ensemble material being added to supplement this. Each piece comprises parts in all transpositions, for the more experienced brass dectet accompanied by an essential drum kit, alongside an across-the-board line-up of beginner parts for all brass instruments in all varieties of transpositions

Description

Evokes the sounds of the soul music of the 1960s with a bit of the blues thrown in for good measure.

“Brilliant technique and superb artistry from all concerned.”

Denis Wick

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

Rodney Newton
Composer, arranger and music journalist

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”

Nicholas F. Mondello

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

Dr. Gavin Dixon

“One of the all time great brass recordings OF ALL TIME”

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