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.

“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.”

Paul Sarcich

"Who but the best professionals could live up to this ?... Everything about this disc is to be recommended, the recording is crystal clear and the playing and arranging of the first water”

Dr. Paul Sarcich

“Brilliant technique and superb artistry from all concerned.”
