Notes and Editorial Reviews



BY REQUEST Mainstreet Brass MSR 1290 (74:33)


Music by DANSON, RIMSKY-KORSAKOV, TRAD, PERREY/KINGSLEY, ELLINGTON, GOTTSCHALK, HOLDRIDGE, MORTON, MANCINI, JONES, SCHIFRIN, NORMAN, MOZART, SUESSDORF, BROOKS, FOSTER, COULTER/GALWAY, UNGAR


There’s something for everyone in this enjoyable collection, from Alan Danson’s festive Intrada celebrating the quintet’s 15th anniversary to the beloved Scottish Read more Loch Lomond and the soulful, slow drag of Jelly Roll Morton’s Dead Man Blues . Mainstreet Brass enters winningly into the spirit of the varied selections with exuberant fluency. Monty Norman’s iSpy medley wittily combines four mini-masterpieces of musical suspense ( Peter Gunn, Mission Impossible, James Bond , and Soul Bossa Nova ), the Queen of the Night’s aria, arranged for trumpet, tests the soloist’s agility, and Ungar’s Ashokan Farewell and Holdridge’s An American Hymn offer poignant evocations of Americana. In addition to the Latin lilt of Gottschalk’s Souvenir de Porto Rico , there are charming medleys of nursery rhymes and Japanese folk songs, a sassy It Don’t Mean a Thing ( If It Ain’t Got that Swing ), and a joyously infectious Darktown Strutter’s Ball . This CD should please Mainstreet Brass’s many fans who often asked for recorded versions of the group’s repertoire—the impetus for the CD—as well as anyone who would enjoy hearing this attractive program played by an excellent, versatile ensemble.
