Sometime ago I wrote this piece in the style of an Argentinian Tango. The process was quick and straightforward; the only problem being that I had yet to think of a title. I decided to take a break and make a cup of tea. I opened a cupboard door (head height) to grab a tea bag only to be met by a falling tin of baked beans that had not been carefully stacked in the cupboard. One big surprise and a sore head later I had a title for my new piece !

Description

PARP ! - a collection of thirty original compositions.

Set at a Junior Band level, PARP ! follows a flexi scoring formula of mixed brass players; requiring a minimum of 4 brass players - but the maximum number is endless.

The pieces are predominantly groove based and seek to take participants through a wide range of styles and musical identities.

In the instance of using just four brass players, playing just the top part in each case will provide a cohesive performance.

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

Peter Bassano
Head of Brass Royal College of Music (retired)

It is scintillatingly good. Superbrass more than live up to their name.”

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

Jiggs Whigham

“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.”
