Description

5 & In ! is the ultimate “starter” band resource. It works on the premise that if a student can play and read 5 basic notes (sometimes less than5) they deserve to be “in the band !”

This resource includes parts for all brass instruments and is designed in such a way that these parts can be combined together to form a wholesome sounding, harmonically complete “band” for 3 to 30 (or more) brass players plus an optional drummer.

The resource begins with a series of short pieces based on an initial chordal theme – “Off to Band”, thereafter the subsequent (longer) ten pieces each embrace “One More Thing”. This “One More Thing” may be an accidental, anew articulation such as an accent or slur or contrasting dynamics – all to add musical interest.

As the “band” works its way through these pieces, my progressive aim is not to continually add more new notes / pitches to the mix, rather having kept the number of notes / pitches to a workable minimum, I seek to add musical and technical development (not to mention programmatic interest) by implementing the varied uses of “rhythm” to give each piece its own unique character.

5 & In ! enables the first steps to be made on an incredible musical journey

“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”

Tom Davoren

“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

“All cleverly arranged and beautifully played, with excellent sonics.”

John Sunier
Audiophile Audition

“This is a wonderfully charismatic disc with playing of the highest quality. I cannot recommend it highly enough.”

David Bremner
The Mouthpiece

“The entire programme can be likened to a sumptuous feast, with each track having its own highly delectable and thoroughly satisfying flavour. The CD is surely compulsive listening for all brass and percussion enthusiasts.”

C Brian Buckley
Brass Band World

"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”
