album to anyone who wants to hear some of the very best of London's
brass and percussion players in exciting, new 'Spanish-flavoured'

playing in all departments plus careful editing gives a clear picture
of the quality of London brass playing in 2011. Brilliant technique
and superb artistry from all concerned. Some really fine new compositions."
what a great CD. The playing is superb and a fantastic programme
gives the star studded line-up a real vehicle to show their talents
to the absolute full."
Robert Childs - Musical Director Cory Band
the Spell of Spain is a showcase of virtuosic playing by some of
London's finest brass and percussion players. As expected in Spanish-flavoured
brass ensemble music, the demands placed on the trumpet section
are particularly extreme, but this star-studded section carries
off these parts with true finesse and flair. The album also contains
some of the best plunger solos you'll ever hear! Highly recommended!"?
