Golland, John: Newsome - Brass
The second of three superb sets of new music and arrangements for brass ensemble. Features: 1. Jazz Intermezzo - Peter Sievewright: Very close harmonies produce thick luscious tone colours, beneath an intriguing jazz theme. 2. Bossa Nova - John Golland: A memorable tune, enjoyable and relaxed as a Bossa Nova should be, with much fun to be had in mastering the Bossa Nova rhythm. 3. Ballade – Grieg, Arr. Ifor James: A simple enough melody, but a marvellous test for the phrasing and intonation of the horn section of the band. Bollin Hill Suite (Hoe Down, Passacaglia and March) – Phillip Malbon A classic suite for brass band, concise yet complete.
