Description

Room 215 is a traditional Scottish folk dance or reel. In Scottish country dancing the reel is one of the four traditional dances, the others being the jig, the strathspey and the waltz. The reel is indigenous to Scotland. The earliest reference was in a witchcraft trail in 1590, when the accused was reported to have “danced this rell…”. However the form may go back even further to the Middle Ages. The reel was introduced to Ireland in the late eighteenth century where it thrived but is danced in soft shoes. Room 215 has been recorded and is regularly performed by the Scottish folk/rock band the Peatbog Faeries    

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.

“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.”
