Notes and Editorial Reviews

Red, White & Brass finds the Canadian Brass playing nine pieces and medleys of great American songs and compositions. Most of the music dates from the late 1800s and early 1900s, with such composers as Irving Berlin and John Philip Sousa getting special attention. Throughout it all, the brass quintet delivers stellar performances, making this record a joyous celebration of the land of the free -- even if it was performed by Canadians!

 With love from the band shack! February 4, 2014 By Jane J  R. (Royal Oak, MI) See All My Reviews "If you ever in your life played in the band, this disc will take you right back and make you remember how lucky you were to do that and how very much fun it was! More than that, it is not necessary to say. If you wake up sad, put this on and you will soon feel better! Buy the CB's Gabrielli et al, but don't let this one get way." Report Abuse
