Big Brass is an appropiate name for the large ensemble arranged and conducted by Ernie Wilkins that accompanies the huge sound of Sonny Rollins. The energy within the leader's gospel-flavored shout "Grand Street" is considerable, while a swinging but no less powerful version of George & Ira Gershwin's "Who Cares" features a choice solo by guitarist Rene Thomas. Also added to this compilation are trio recordings with bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Specs Wright, including a brilliant leisurely stroll through "Manhattan," along with Rollins' tour de force unaccompanied tenor sax on "Body and Soul."

One of Nat Adderley's finest albums. Sometimes the inclusion of tuba in a small-group modern jazz setting can produce whale-like results among a school of dolphin, but that's not the case here. Tuba man Laymon Jackson doesn't dominate or weigh down the proceedings, but merely gives them another texture. Nat is in fine form; I like his Miles mode on BLUE CONCEPT a lot. Tune selection for the date is also top rate: the two compositions by Duke Pearson (WHAT NEXT? and LITTLE MISS) are especially good. Nat Adderley fans and modern jazz lovers in general should like this ambitious CD very much.

The players varied the sound and delivery of each piece as suited the music and the mood, making for a lively program entirely lacking in dull spots: a great idea for an audience that’s showed up expecting some fun. Which they got. The playing was crisp, tight, harmonious, and, well, really brassy. Burning River is clearly an ensemble that enjoys its work. Its easy, punchy delivery, which seems unforced and effortless, could only have turned out that way with a significant amount of practice and great attention to detail… this Christmas Concert was about as good as it gets.

The Olympia Brass Band is a New Orleans jazz brass band. The first "Olympia Brass Band" was active from the late 19th century to around World War I. The most famous member was Freddie Keppard. In 1958, saxophonist Harold Dejan, leader of the 2nd unit of the Eureka Brass Band, split off to form the current Olympia, reviving the historic name. The band had a notable part in the 1973 James Bond movie Live and Let Die where they lead a funeral march for a victim assassinated during the march. Trumpeter Alvin Alcorn plays the knife wielding "baby-faced killer". In addition to playing for parades and parties, the band had a weekly gig at Preservation Hall on Sunday nights for many years. The band also toured Europe on numerous occasions and also toured Africa for the U. S. State Department. The band did a BBC radio broadcast for Queen Elizabeth's 25th wedding anniversary in 1972 while they were in London, and also played for Pope John Paul II on his visit to New Orleans.

The Brass Septet Imperial is a Finnish ensemble. Its mission is to honour and revitalise the old Finnish brass septet traditions and at the same time to raise traditional septet playing to the highest artistic standard. Its members are all among the finest masters of their instruments in Finland. The Septet is modelled on the time-honoured Brass Septet Imperial of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra familiar to radio listeners for decades. Its repertoire consists of classic works for this line-up and quality transcriptions. The ensemble also actively seeks out new music for brass septet and commissions works for this collection of instruments. This debut disc, Punaiset ja valkoiset laulut (which literally means ‘Red and White Songs’) of songs across the political divide, presents an interesting selection of both original arrangements for Finnish brass septet arranged roughly a century ago and also brand-new septet arrangements of these traditional works.

The veterans of the Canadian Brass here show why the group continues to attract big audiences despite a good deal of competition they themselves have inspired. By now their seamless blend, made possible by the way each individual instrumentalist polishes his attack down to a seductive gentleness, is familiar to almost everyone who listens to over-the-air or Internet classical radio.

By pumping up the beat on the sound of traditional New Orleans funeral and second-line parade bands, and injecting it with doses of soul, funk and bop, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band (the group is actually an octet) has almost single-handedly revitalized the genre for the 21st century. This fun compilation collects highlights from the group's 1987 to 1993 stay at Columbia Records, sticking pretty much to the Dirty Dozen's more energetic (thus "hot") material, including "Remember When" and a wonderful version of Jelly Roll Morton's "Jungle Blues." Dizzy Gillespie contributes both his trumpet and a joyful scat vocal to "Ooh Pop a Duh," Branford Marsalis guests on Charlie Parker's "Moose the Mooche," Dr. John brings some soulful voodoo to a cover of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now," and Elvis Costello contributes a lead vocal to "That's How You Got Killed Before."
