Description

Showboating makes use of many cliché Balkan musical traits, not least it’s shifting use of the 7/8 time signature.

Due to all things Covid-19 related this piece was written to challenge students to record their part remotely to a 7/8 click track. Hence, no rall's or accel's just the proverbial ‘**** off a shovel constant driving pulse.

Jock McKenzie

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

“Every now and again a recording that is both truly outstanding and will have great appeal to brass band listeners appears on the shelves. We are delighted to make it the first recipient of our CD of the Year Editors Award.”

Kenneth Crookston

“Exploding onto the brass music scene with their debut album ‘Under the Spell of Spain’, the depth of versatility and virtuosity within the ranks of Superbrass has firmly secured it's place as one of the greatest large brass ensembles of all time”
